Photo Comment

Dutchman Frits Koolhoven designed this fighter for the British BAT company in 1918. F1654 was used for racing after the war, wearing these colours and provisional civil registration K-123. Beautifully restored, it was moved to the grand Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam in 2012, even though it's hardly a Dutch aircraft.
