Photo Comment

KLM's DC-3 PH-ARB "Buizerd" escaped from Schiphol during the Nazi invasion of Holland in early May 1940. It was camouflaged and re-registered G-AGBD and flown by Dutch and BOAC crews on runs to neutral Lisbon and Shannon. Returned to KLM postwar as PH-TBD. To Skyways as G-AGBD in August 1946. From KLM 60 years ago.
