Aircraft reportedly given in 1930 by roller bearing manufactuer Henry Tinken to his son, who was trained to fly it by Lt Ralph Wickford. Apparently this Tri-Motor won a race for 'transport ships' at the National Air Races in 1931. By July 1933, it was the largest plane owned by Shell and flown on a tour around New England that summer by Maj Ervin and Wickford again, taking Shell distributors, dealers and friends on pleasure flights. It was furnished with six leather and wicker chairs and a large green leather divan. Sold to Colombian air force in 1935. To AN-AAD in Nicaragua, XH-TAI in Honduras.

Developed from the Fairey IIIF and very similar to the Fairey Gordon, the Seal was a naval spotter and reconnaissance aircraft that could be operated from carriers and also as a floatplane, like the Swordfish which would replace it. This is probably a factory photo of K3481 when new. It was also photographed while serving with No 821 Sqn of the FAA in 1934. Apparently it was with a Royal Air Force training unit when it crashed at RAF Usworth in 1939. Postcard.

The first Koolhoven aircraft to reach the Union of South Africa was a model FK.41, modified by Desoutter in the UK to a Desoutter Dolphin. It was the second production aircraft built by the Koolhoven factory in Holland and was purchased by Marcel Desoutter and registered G-AAGC. It was sold to the Air Taxi Company (Pty) Ltd. of Wingfield in Cape Town and was registered ZS-ADX. The aircraft featured prominently in the search for the famous Swiss pilot Carl Nauer, who went missing along the West coast of Africa in August 1933.
