PH-KBX and PH-PBX

The pictures were uploaded to my photobucket account, click to enlarge please.

The Queen uses a Fokker 70 Executive, painted with orange and nassaublue livery:
It is called PH-KBX
PH = international code for Netherlands' airplanes
KBX = Koningin BeatriX

The Queen's previous plane was a Fokker F-28 Fellowship,
this was called PH-PBX
PH = international code for Netherlands' airplanes
PBX = Prinses BeatriX

The Swedish Royal Family does not have any airplane of their own, but they regularly use one of the planes own by the Swedish state, i think they have two or three rather small airplanes, otherwise the royal family flies with ordinary commercial airplanes.

I've been always doubtful about whether it's true that Willem Alexander secretely commanded many regular KLM flights (like, without passengers knowing HE was the pilot). Does anyone know for sure?

Well, it is fairly well known that one of his hobbies is to fly an airplane. He often flies the goverment plane where he is travelling in to. I am not to sure about the KLM flights, but I am sure that the crew invites him for a look in the cockpit when he travels with KLM.
He did fly in F16 figher planes from the army btw.

The prince of Orange did fly as copilot on commercial KLM flights.
The crew would certainly know, but since most often only the captains name is mentioned clearly, and noone pays attention anyway the "Alexander Amsberg" falls thru
As to security, he didn't have any bodyguards flying with him, but the throng of determined young ladies were quite lethal.

Apparently, the other passengers were a little surprised, too!
