According to some sources, this SABCA-built, twin-engined machine was originally a W.8e trimotor, but was it? We assume this photo was taken early on, in 1924, because the original Dutch caption mentions an 'Amsterdam-Rotterdam-Basel' service which was advertised in the Dutch press at the time. Rotterdam to Basel took five hours according to the schedule and cost 70 guilders with a 15-kg baggage allowance. Actually the Sabena routes involved were Brussels-Rotterdam, extendended to Amsterdam from 1 September 1924, and Brussels-Strasbourg-Basel. Photo from: ETH-Bibliothek Zürich

The sole FK.48 was the last airliner built for KLM by the artisanal Koolhoven company, using a surplus FK.40 wing which was literally sawn in halves, interlinked in a gull shape and supported by four struts. Nicknamed 'Ajax', PH-AJX could carry six passengers in KLM service and was mainly used on the Amsterdam-Eindhoven route until it was relegated to sightseeing, air taxi and training duties.

One of a few oddballs in the KLM fleet by Koolhoven, the other Dutch manufacturer. Only slightly larger than the FK.43 air taxis the FK.40 was a domestic airliner designed to carry up to six passengers, but the sole example was given a spacious interior for four. It was sold to a private pilot in 1936 and ended up in the Spanish Civil War. Photo from: ETH-Bibliothek Zürich

This Wal was to be added to Roald Amundsen's aborted North Pole flight with N-24 and N-25 as a gift from Benito Mussolini. This did not go ahead and Mussolini suggested that Antonio Locatelli's crew should fly to the North Pole on their own. Instead, Locatelli left Marina di Pisa on 25 July 1924 for a North Atlantic crossing, more or less joining the US Army Douglas World Cruisers on the final legs of their circumnavigation of the globe. The Wal had to make an emergency landing in the ocean off Greenland on 21 August. The crew was rescued after four days by the American picket ship USS Richmond.

Prototype of the Pander D single-seat light sport monoplane, first flown on 16 November 1924. Designed by Theo Slot it was based on the earlier Carley C.12 and Holland H.2. Pander was a well-known furniture maker and the wooden construction of the plane was well acclaimed. Ten Pander Ds were built. Four were delivered to the Dutch navy and the East Indies army for evaluation as trainers, but used for pleasure flights. Photo from: Nederlands Instituut voor Militaire Historie

Seating up to 20 passengers the F.IX was Fokker's largest trimotor airliner. There was little wrong with the design but Its appearance coincided with the Great Depression and only two examples were built for KLM. The Avia company in Czechoslovakia built the type under licence as an airliner and bomber. Photo from: Haags Gemeentearchief

The F.III was a notable early airliner of which some 66 examples were built. Uniquely the pilot sat alongside the slightly offset engine, 'burning on one side and freezing on the other'. Used by then for sightseeing flights, this airframe was lost on 24 July 1928 here at Rotterdam when the pilot made too short a take-off run, hit a ship's masts and crashed into the Waalhaven harbour. One of the passengers drowned. Photo from: Amsterdam City Archives

The first FK-46 training and sport aircraft. The type had docile characeristics and was used succesfully in some numbers by the Dutch National Aviation School (NLS). The production aircraft were quite different from this wooden prototype. Photo from: ETH-Bibliothek Zürich

First flown in 1931, the four-seat FK-43 executive aircraft and air taxi was one of the more succesful Koolhoven types, with a dozen examples built plus another eight by Fokker after WWII. Eight of the original aircraft were used by KLM. This one was delivered to the airline in November 1933 and named Juffertje (damselfly). It crashed at Amsterdam on 18 December 1935.
