Playful yet true stories, gripping, amusing and sometimes touching, illustrating an unknown side of the Dutch airline including some of the author’s private and artistic adventures.
The book contains a foreword by author, Ken Wilkey.
After a long period of 21 years in which the cineaste made a thousand short films on behalf of the KLM royal dutch airlines, Erik
has written a book with personal stories from this extensive archive.
Who are those KLM people and who is Erik J. Hannesen?
In 55 playful stories, Erik grants the reader a peek behind the scenes of KLM more or less like the fly on the wall.
Like KLM, Erik’s playful stories fly you around the globe to meet people from all walks of life.
And you catch a glimpse of his very own acting career.
You find out about Silvia Kristel, Johan Cruijff, Paul Verhoeven and the Toneelschool in Amsterdam.
What is the connection of the Dutch Big Bird, Pino, with the writer?
Alitalia and Air France open for you.
It’s all about adventure and sincerity.
