Introducing KLMs first Dreamliner

November 2015
“The Sunflower arrived”

As part of KLM’s fleet renewal program, its first Boeing 787-9 touched down at it’s home base Amsterdam Schiphol in The Netherlands on November 14, 2015. Just a week later, on Sunday 22, we were able to fly the first ever passenger flight. 21 Dreamliners -9 and -10 will join the KLM in the coming years.

In the early morning of Saturday November 14, KLM Dreamliner named Sunflower touched down on runway 27 at Amsterdam Schiphol, after a direct flight from Paine Field, Everett.

A week later, on Sunday November 22, we joined the first ever passenger flight out of Amsterdam. This special inaugural flight, and two others later that day, were organized by KLM to let enthusiasts experience the new aircraft.

My report, see link above, as published on was picked up by Aeromundo Magento out of Ecuador. They translated the story and published a two page article.
