The plane is mostly a light blue, with a white belly, the 2 sections seperated by a thin dark blue stripe running along the body. There are "KLM Cityhopper" titles on the upper forward fuselage, under a stylised white crown. The white tail and engine pods have blue "KLM" titles under a blue crown. The letters "ZI" are visible on the front of the upper fuselage, above the cockpit windows. In the background, a large terminal building can be seen on the lower right of the frame, with a large tower running the full height of the left of the frame.
