KLM MD11 Final Flight - 25 Oct 2014

Anyone else going to be on the last MD11 commercial flight tomorrow night YUL-AMS??

I'm saying goodbye to the MD11 and DC10 in the same year.

Why I never flew on entire DC-10 & MD-11 before. I am so sad about the MD-11 will be gone soon. We will be missed. Farewell to MD-11.

I can only wish. Pretty sure my good friend UVA185 is on it.

Was on KL672 from YUL-AMS for last MD-11 flight, what a memory.

Did we meet on board?? I was in the blue Hawaiian shirt.

A few photos and the story I published about the final MD11 flight, for anyone interested.







Yes, that's a tattoo of the MD11 on his arm.

Lots of AvGeeks on board and the crew was having a great time as well. I feel a bit badly for the regular passengers who just wanted to get to Amsterdam and beyond; they had no idea what they were in for on that flight.

n.b. The link above is to my blog or to one which I am a regular contributor. FT rules require that I disclose that in the post.
