Photographer's Remark

Delivered in 1925 and used by Roald Amundsen on an aborted North Pole flight. Arrived at Schellingwoude on 2 March 1927 from Horten 'to take on fuel on its third voyage to Harwich,' apparently dropping off a Norwegian government official who had a meeting in Rotterdam. The return leg from Schellingwoude to Horten was on 15 March. The Wal flew Horten - Kiel - Friedrichshafen later that month for resale by Dornier. Flew to New York as D-1422 in 1930 under Wolfgang von Gronau. Transferred to Deutsches Museum Munich in 1932 but damaged beyond repair by bombing in 1944. Photo from: Amsterdam City Archives
