KLM will now say goodbye to the Boeing 747 on Sunday. Two aircraft of that type will land at Schiphol for the last time in the KLM colors, a spokesman for the airline said on Friday.

KLM announced in March of this year that it would say goodbye to the 'Queen of the Skies', as the jumbo jet is affectionately known, as a result of the corona crisis.

The last flight actually took place, but a little later the aircraft was used again for the transport of medical supplies.

This Sunday, the aircraft with registration PH-BFV will land at Schiphol for the last time at 4.40 pm, followed by the PH-BFW at 8.50 pm.

"Both planes receive the


call sign

when they enter Dutch airspace," said the KLM spokesperson.

A call sign is the number that a device receives from air traffic control.

This is usually the same number as the flight number.

This has been adjusted for this occasion and can be heard as such in the communication between the pilots and the control tower.
