Boeing paint scheme

KLM ROYAL DUTCH AIRLINES has taken delivery of a Boeing 777-300ER painted in a special SkyTeam livery in celebration of the alliance's tenth anniversary.  The aircraft also marks the start of an in-service evaluation using chrome-free decorative paint and primer.  As part of the company’s lifecycle approach to reducing environmental impact and in response to KLM's and other customers’ requests, Boeing has introduced a chrome-free primer and chrome-free exterior decorative paint scheme.  In addition, to simplify health and safety monitoring requirements, the primer reduces the environmental impact of the paint and stripping process. Removing chrome from the paint and primer eliminates the need for special handling of paint waste and clean-up and designated offsite disposal areas.  The experiment will be evaluated on other new deliveries with the intention of making it an option in the future.
