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.
