Photo Comment

First flown in 1924, the largish DH.51 touring aircraft looks rather like the WWI DH.9 bomber, and this machine is painted in the colours of pioneering British airline AT&T. An AT&T DH.9 flew the first London to Paris air service in 1919. AT&T also operated the first KLM service in 1920.
