Video: KLM’s 100th Anniversary Film

A couple of days back, KLM celebrated its 100th anniversary. The airline is the oldest in the world still operating under its original name.

KLM has released a celebratory ad to commemorate the milestone. The film is called “To More Memories Together,” and follows three generations of KLM crew.

KLM said about the film: “The film tracks KLM’s evolution from 1919 to the present day and features classic airplanes such as the Fokker F.II in 1934, the Douglas DC-4 in 1949, Boeing 747 in 1975 and ending with the brand-new Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner. All brought to life with the authentic uniforms, props and details from each decade.”

I expected this video to be a usual corporate film, but after watching it a couple of times, I really appreciated it. It showcases the change in the world of aviation both in technology and socially, with the third generation of the family being a captain on the airline’s newest 787.
