Boeing 777-200ER - KLM

KLM Royal Dutch Airlines replaced its Boeing 747-300 aircraft with Boeing 777-200ERs. The first of ten Triple Sevens was delivered to KLM on 24 October 2003. That was the first airplane in the world with Boeing's so-called Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) in the flight deck. The EFB system presents all the information pilots need in a digital format. Carrying lots of paperwork with them when boarding the plane, is no longer necessary for the pilots. The KLM 777s were also among the first with a major avionics upgrade since the introduction of the type in 1995. Late 2004 KLM ordered two more 777-200ERs, making a total of twelve.

The Triple Seven on the picture is taxiing at KLM's homebase Amsterdam Schiphol Airport. The airline merged with Air France in 2004, but still operates under its own identity.
