A Fokker T.IV of the original series, with Lorraine-Dietrich engines and open crew positions, over the Madura Strait, off Java. The T.IV was intended mainly for anti-shipping missions, having an internal bomb bay for four 200-kg bombs; the Dornier Wal flying boat could not have bomb doors.

First flown on 9 September 1939, the prototype of the Vultee V-48 / P-66 Vanguard fighter initially had a pointed nose housing an R-1830 radial engine, which overheated, and a normal radial cowling was fitted instead. The type also had stability issues. A Swedish order for 144 Vanguards was embargoed and 129 of these were sent to China via Karachi, although only 79 reached Chengdu to see action with the Chinese air force.

Conceived by racing car driver, pilot and water speed record holder Henry Segrave, the Meteor G-AAXP was built by Saunders-Roe at Cowes in 1930. It was cancelled from the register as destroyed in September 1932. Two versions with metal fuselages were completed by Blackburn as Blackburn CA18 Segraves. A third one was used to test a tubular spar wing as the CA20 Seagrave II. Photo from: The National Library of Australia

The sole FK.48 was the last airliner built for KLM by the artisanal Koolhoven company, using a surplus FK.40 wing which was literally sawn in halves, interlinked in a gull shape and supported by four struts. Nicknamed 'Ajax', PH-AJX could carry six passengers in KLM service and was mainly used on the Amsterdam-Eindhoven route until it was relegated to sightseeing, air taxi and training duties.

It is said that 90,000 people turned out for the XC-99's first flight. This transport derivative of the B-36 bomber never made much sense, and the wheel pressure caused by the original undercarriage even ensured there were very few places it could fly to! Its last flight was on 19 March 1957, following which it was preserved at Kelly AFB in San Antonio, TX. It was acquired by the USAF Museum in 1993, but it took 15 years before the aircraft was actually moved to their main facility in Dayton, OH, in early 2008. In 2012 the disassembled XC-99 was moved again, this time to Davis-Monthan AFB in Arizona for storage. It is said that restoration could take more than 30 years.

One of only two Super Electras briefly operated by KLM in Europe, Ekster (magpie) arrived in Rotterdam on 10 March 1938 and crashed near Schiphol during a training flight on 9 December 1938. The four crew were all killed. The accident investigation blamed the experienced instructor for turning off the starboard engine too soon after take-off, while the trainee had only one hour on the type.

KLM opened its scheduled intercontinental service to Batavia (Jakarta) in 1930 on a fortnightly basis with the Fokker F.VIIb/3m. From 1 October 1931 it was flown weekly in both directions by the new Fokker F.XII, which carried four to six passengers on the route in addition to the mail. PH-AIV Valk (falcon) has been put up horizontally for an inspection by Queen Wilhelmina. The comfy chairs and the catering provisions are also displayed outside for the media, including the Polygoon cinema newsreel. Photo from: Amsterdam City Archives

KLM's first multi-engined aircraft, the large FK.33 was designed by Frits Koolhoven for the NVI company. It was intended for evening services manned by two pilots and a radio operator. The three engines were uncovered. The pusher engine on the wing was not an afterthought although the aircraft did initially fly with two engines. Note the ladder behind the cabin. Seen here over Rotterdam with the Katendrecht peninsula in the foreground, 'Dikke Dirk' (Fat Derek) was not a succes and only flew 85 hours in KLM service between December 1925 and mid-1927 when it was sold to Germany as D-1250 and registered with the cn as 501, later changed to 1001.
