VH-ARD photographed by Dr Alan Wood in its way to Rome to pick up migrants. This might have been the flight from which it did not return, instead diverting to Israel where it became a makeshift bomber.

Twelve 16-22 seat DC-5's were built in 1939/40 with KLM being the only civil operator. The U.S. Navy bought seven new examples of the R3D and the prototype was impressed by them. 1902 was delivered to NAS Anacostia in July 1940. It is seen visting the US West Coast wearing Anacostia titles. The U.S. national marking had no bars at this time and was not marked on the fuselage. Taken by F. Shertzer and image given to me by William T. Larkins 40 years ago for publication. No DC-5's survive..

Formerly PK-ADD with KNILM and flown to Australia in 1942 to escape the Japanese advance through Indonesia. Impressed by the USAAF, it was operated by Australian National Airways with the call sign VHCXC. It was given a temporary serial of 41-426 and after it was withdrawn from use, an official serial of 44-83232 and the official type designation C-110.<br>ANA bought the DC-5 after the war and it became VH-ARD. After a couple of changes of ownership, it went to Israel in 1948 as a makeshift bomber. It ended its days in a children's playground. Scanned from the original negative, now held by Bill Gray. Photographer's name unknown.
