Photographer's Remark

Return of Co van Tijen after his flight to the Netherlands East Indies in this light aircraft in late 1930. Actually, the plane had been shipped back to Holland and Van Tijen was picked up with it in Cologne by his flying instructor, Willem van Graft. A grand welcoming cermony had been organised by stakeholders including Pander, the NLS flying school, and Van Tijen's employer, Van Houten's chocolate factory which sent 200 girls to form the letters 'VH' on the platform.
