For us here at Naijauto, we could only think of the expression “Time to go Home” when we got the update about this of a certain retired Boeing 747-400 aircraft that is being hauled across the streets and roads down to a Hotel where it is going to become a new form of attraction.
The Dutch airline KLM has been seen transporting one Boeing 747-400 of 150-tonne across the road to the courtyard of Corendon Village hotel, Amsterdam where they claim will be its new home from now on. Why?
Because the aircraft has been flown for good 30 years and it has now retired. Would you agree with us now, that it's truly “Time to go Home”?
A record total of 9,000 people actually applied for the just 6,000 tickets available covering to watch this aircraft’s 8 miles (12.5 km) and 5-day journey from the airport all the way to the hotel.

This retired aircraft was actually acquired by its new owners after it made its last successful commercial flight all the way from Los Angeles to Amsterdam back in 2018. After the purchase, the plane was flown for repainting job in Rome where it was repainted to the white and red livery of its new owner’s brand.

After the aircraft returned to the Netherlands, AELS – an aircraft recycling company removed all of its reusable materials. Then, this aircraft was finally hauled from the Schiphol Airport to its new home on a huge transporter automotive – the self-propelled multi-wheeled Mammoet transporter. This transportation process involved taken the plane across 17 ditches and even the A9 motorway before it finally came to rest at Corendon Village Hotel’s garden where it now serves as a new attraction.
