Schiphol in 1935, view towards the north. Although still muddy, the airfield is becoming a tourist attraction. Beyond the terrace is a Fokker D.XVI fighter. An old KLM F.VIIa is also seen. The DC-2 is named Koetilang, Malay for bulbul bird, reflecting the importance of the East Indies to KLM and to Dutch society in general. Aircraft destroyed by bombing here on 10 May 1940.

An iconic photo of the citizens of Albury towing Uiver out of the mud, allowing the KLM DC-2 to take off and finish in second place in the London to Melbourne Air Race. Pilots Parmentier and Moll had managed a hairy emergency landing on the local racecourse, lit by the headlights of private car owners, during the night. Photo from: Tropenmuseum

KLM's London to Melbourne Air Race adventure might very well have ended in disaster when Uiver got caught in a thunderstorm at night. Thanks to the townsfolk of Albury, the DC-2 was able to land safely, and here Captain Parmentier is seen taking off from the racecourse, leaving the rest of the crew and the payload behind. This was possibly against the race rules but no one seems to have protested. Photo from: State Library Victoria

This picture shows the original Douglas DC-2, PH-AJU, de "Uiver". An enormous crowd gathered at the airfield of Darmo, Surabaya. The plane made a stop over during its return flight from Australia to Holland after it participated in the Londen-Melbourne race. There are more than enough volunteers to push the DC-2 to its parking spot!
