The RY-3 was a transport version of the PB4Y Privateer. Like the earlier C-87 / RY-2 Liberator Express, it had surprisingly serious issues and most of the 34 RY-3s built were disposed of to the Royal Air Force, receiving the Liberator C.IX designation but seeing only brief service from February 1945 until April 1946. This airframe, BuNo 90021 which became JT973, was transferred to the RCAF as an ice research aircraft named Rockcliffe Icewagon, surviving the wrecker until 1949. Photo from: US Navy

Developed in 1928, the C.VIIw was a two-seat reconnaissance and training seaplane of which 30 examples were built. Jaap de Moor, whose father served at Morokrembangan, noted the protective bow pudding attached to each float 'by the sailing navy' as Jaap, himself a former naval pilot, put it.

De Kooy is a naval airfield but the D.XXI fighters of 1 JaVA/1 Regt were based here briefly during November 1939 and again from 10 April 1940. This was arguably the top Dutch fighter unit and it did fairly well in air combat when the Germans invaded one month later. Note orange triangle national insignia, carried as of 1 October 1939.

Seen here over the fishing village of Volendam, D-21 was one of three to be flown - rather than shipped - to the Far East in April-May 1929. D-22 crashed in Baghdad.
