I thought this was going to be about a Cessna 150

KLM retired PH-BFD last year with about 135k hours, so I have read.

It first flew in 1989 and has about 15 years airborne (half its existence).

That also means it’s travelled around 74,250,000 miles.

Assume they fly 5h a day, 11 months a year, you will need something with 70 years of service
But you may find a (school) Cessna 150 with 60000 hours (even if we have flying Toyota Hilux/Mercedes G-Wagen)

Yes, KLM would have a long living Boeing in their fleet, they are the oldest in the business

A DR400 (F-GBIC) from 1978 with 17186h TT on it is for sale in France.

Wood has infinite fatigue life

I would (no pun intended) like to fly one of those some day.

@Silvaire you should be touching the wood

@Jujupilote I’ve never been to Paris either, and although I’m currently holding delayed reservations for a fourth trip to Corsica instead, I wouldn’t mind doing so
