This aviation video features McDonnell Douglas MD-11 (MD11) aeroplanes of Dutch airline Martinair Cargo. Filmed in 4K Ultra HD, this video includes the last ever Martinair MD-11 landing and departing London Stansted Airport.
Martinair airlines is based in the Netherlands and was formed in 1958. Having flown both passenger and cargo flights. After 58 years transporting passengers and following a buyout by KLM, Martinair ceased flying passengers in October 2011.
By March 2015 Air-France KLM announced they were reducing Cargo operations and that all Martinair MD-11 aircraft would be taken out of service and not be replaced.
This video is therefore a tribute to this great and powerful McDonnell Douglas aircraft and to Martinair that flew the MD-11 to London Stansted for many years.
So, after receiving their first MD-11 in 1994, their last, PH-MCP, flew out of London Stansted on 27 June 2016 for it's short flight back to Amsterdam Schiphol for retirement.
I hope you enjoy watching both the final landing and departure of PH-MCP as well as some other scenes of Martinair MD-11's that I have filmed recently.
I look forward to your comments and thank you for watching.
