End of an Era (group flight to St Maarten)
Effective from the new winter 2016-2017 timetable, KLM will change their equipment on the Amsterdam (EHAM) to Sint Maarten (TNCM) route from a Boeing 747-400 to an Airbus A330-200 as the type is slowly phased out of the fleet. The end of an era, as the Queen of the Skies is one of the most appreciated sights on the well-known approach that leads low over Maho Beach.

KLM/AFR VA, in cooperation with the Dutch VACC and the San Juan CERAP, will organise a group flight on the 29th of October to commemorate this legendary flight on the 747. Pilots can depart Amsterdam Airport Schiphol from 10:00 till 12:00 UTC and expect ATC all the way enroute. Everyone is invited to join in!
