With a flight from London to Amsterdam, Dutch airline KLM said its final goodbyes to the Fokker 70 plane. The last KLM flight with a Fokker 70 landed on Schiphol airport around 8:30 p.m. on Saturday. And on Sunday a Fokker monument was unveiled at Schiphol Oost.
KLM decided to part with the Fokker planes because their maintenance became too expensive, NOS reports. The planes were discontinued in 1996, making it difficult to find parts. Over the past years, KLM still flew with seven Fokker planes.
