  1. Who wants and can make a english translation for this video for me? my english isn't very good. Wie kan en wil Engelse ondertiteling schrijven voor deze video? Ik zelf ben niet erg goed in Engels helaas

  2. Very good documentary. It would be interesting to know on what date was filmed, because Avianca does´t  have  747's in its fleet from about 25 years ago. The aircraft shown here, the HK-2980X left Avianca´s fleet  in the mid-80s and then was converted to freighter in 2000, serving until 2013 in Kalitta Air.  That year she was stored.

  3. Avianca is a company that was created in Barranquilla (Colombia) and it´s one of the aviation pioneer in the world. Nowdays  it´s one of the most important company of this globle. I´m proud because I´m from Barranquilla. I love this company. 

  4. I´m colombian and I dont know what language is this, so my question is why an Avianca airplane is being fixed or whatever by KLM tehnicians. I supposed this process might be been done in another country, Its correct? Whats this country? and what´s the relationship between the 2 companies?

  5. Uitstekende video, het maakt niet uit als de vertaling niet in het Engels of Spaans, hoe dan ook het is een geweldige compilatie van informatie over de luchtvaartactiviteit. Bedankt voor het delen; Ik zal het delen met uw toestemming.
