In the early 1930s there was not so much light between a small airliner, a high-end private plane, and a combat aircraft. The Consolidated 18 was a dive-bomber variant of the Fleetster with a new metal wing and an internal bomb bay. The sole example was delivered to NAS Anacostia as the XBY-1 on 26 September 1932. Apparently it was not repaired after a landing accident at NAS Norfolk on 13 April 1933.

Fourteen Kingbird D-2s were built, two of which were exported to Turkey to provide the first air link between Ankara and Istanbul, via Eskişehir. NC601V (c/n 2007) became T.H.P.207 with Türk Hava Postalari in February 1933. Later that year it was transferred to Devlet Hava Yollari (DHY), predecessor of THY, as TC-KUŞ (with cedilla), fleet number 2. Here it is being inspected in Ankara by Atatürk, presumably at Güvercinlik. The other Kingbird, NC602V (c/n 2008), became T.H.P.208, then TC-102C with DHY (fleet number 1). It reportedly carried the name Kelebek (butterfly).

In 1941, flying training in the Netherlands East Indies was boosted by the establishment of the Vrijwillig Vlieger Corps (Voluntary Pilot Corps). It received some fifty yellow Australian-built Tiger Moths. This is the Batavia (Jakarta) VVC wing at Kemayoran. One source gives c/n DHA465 for PK-VVG, but there is conflicting information. PK-VVJ, PK-VVH, PK-VVA plus six others are parked behind.

The sole Loire 102 was the largest flying boat built by Loire Aviation of Saint-Nazaire. Intended for the Dakar - Natal air mail route, it had a forward cabin for four passengers. Clearly not very modern when it first flew in 1936, it suffered from vibration problems and was scrapped in 1938, meanwhile modified with a single main tailfin.

Picture from collection of Rudy Burgwal, who crossed from occupied Holland to England in a boat on 3 September 1941. The Harvards in his photos show that his advanced flying training in Canada took place with 32 Service Training Flying School at Moose Jaw. He became a Spitfire pilot in No 322 (Dutch) Sqn, and downed some 18 V-1s. He was killed near Orléans on 12 August 1944 on a bomber escort mission.

The original Dutch caption says that this was the second 'Super Flying Fortress' to land in Europe, and correctly states that the first one visited France. It is actually the same aircraft, however - see other photo - and 44-61679 also visited Copenhagen in September 1945.

The Fairey Long-range Monoplane first flew in November 1928. The first example, J9479, flew non-stop from Britain to India but did not manage to break the world distance record before it fatally crashed in 1929. This is its replacement, presumably photographed in the early morning of 6 February 1933 before Sqn Ldr Gayford and Flt Lt Nicholetts took off for a successful non-stop flight to Walvis Bay in South Africa in 57 hours, taking the world distance record for a couple of months.

German caption: 'Royal Air Force aircraft in training in flight over Heyford Aerodrome. Next Saturday there will be a large air display near London.' This was likely King George V's Silver Jubilee Review at Mildenhall on 6 July 1935. The unit only flew the Hart from June 1934 until early 1936. Nearest to the camera is K3965.
