Designed as a heavy bomber, the F.60 Goliath with its bus-like fuselage was easily transformed into an important early airliner, seating up to twelve passengers. The second prototype, painted green, departed Paris in the morning of 12 August 1919 and landed at Soesterberg 3.5 hours later, bound for Copenhagen. As F-GEAD this airframe was involved in the world's first mid-air collission between airliners, with DH.18A G-EAWO over Picardie on 7 April 1922. Both aircraft were following the same railway line in misty weather, and all seven people on board the two planes lost their lives. Photo from: Nederlands Instituut voor Militaire Historie
