Photo Comment

Three floors up from Rembrandt's Night Watch, this British fighter and racer is on display in the foremost museum in the Netherlands. It's an odd choice in my opinion because other than the designer, Frits Koolhoven, there is nothing Dutch about it. This airframe did fly at the ELTA exhibition in Amsterdam in 1919.
