KLM are retiring their fleet of Fokker 70 aircraft by the end of the year and they have unveiled a special farewell livery to commemorate the phasing out of its last remaining Fokker 70 aircraft.
The Fokker 70 and previously Fokker 100 has been the backbone of the airlines short haul fleet over the 2 decades and has provided so many of the important feeder services from European regional airports into its hub at Amsterdam Schipol.
The Dutch carrier currently has nine Fokker 70s in service, which are gradually being phased out as the airline takes delivery of new Embraer 175 and 190 jets.
One of the remaining Fokker aircraft has been painted with the face of Dutch aviation pioneer and aircraft manufacturer Anthony Fokker, and will fly with the special livery until it takes its last flight on October 28
