Photographer's Remark

The first commercial helicopter in the Netherlands, operated by Aero Ypenburg. Just having arrived from Paris, the Hiller was hired by the Albert Heijn grocery chain for a week to make deliveries to selected housewives in several cities. In Amsterdam a fairground on Jan van Galenstraat was in use as an experimental heliport. Photo by: Nationaal Archief (Netherlands)
