KLM’s 97-year association with Dutch manufacturer Fokker came to an end when it retired its last F70 in October. The Dutch ai airline ensured it went out in style, as Richard Schuurman reports.
W ithin eight minutes they had all gone. First PH-KZU, then ‘KZB and, after a brief pause, ‘KZL and ‘KZS. The last four KLM Cityhopper Fokker 70s took off like rockets on their farewell flights from Amsterdam Airport Schiphol on October 29.
