One of KLM’s former Boeing 747-400s has been transported to a hotel just outside Amsterdam Schiphol, where it will be converted into an exhibit about the iconic aircraft. Transfer of the aircraft – formerly registered PH-BFB, and named Bangkok – coincided with the 50th anniversary of Boeing’s maiden flight with the 747 on 9 February 1969.The jet has been moved, during a five-day operation, to the Corendon Village Hotel at Badhoevedorp on the north-eastern edge of Schiphol airport. It is painted in the colours of holiday company Corendon Group whose activities include the Corendon Dutch Airlines division in the Netherlands.
