Checking-in: Boeing 747 finds new home in hotel garden



Travel agency, airline company and hotelier Corendon will have a complete Boeing 747-400 transported from Schiphol airport to the Corendon Village Hotel in Amsterdam this February, where the plane will be placed in the hotel garden.

Dutch specialized transport company, Mammoet, will transport the 150 ton plane from the airport to the hotel in five days, starting Tuesday evening February 5th. During its spectacular last journey, the Boeing has to cross 17 ditches, highway A9 and one provincial road.

The Boeing 747 - former KLM aircraft 'City of Bangkok' - will be given a new final destination after 30 years of reliable service.
