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.

VH-UVK set out for Australia as G-ABGK, Race No. 16, in the 1934 Mildenhall-Melbourne air race. Its race was over when its undercarriage collapsed on landing at Aleppo in Syria. The damaged aircraft was salvaged and shipped to Australia where it was repaired by Horrie Miller, of MacRobertson Miller Airlines fame. He operated -UVK until November 1941 when the RAAF impressed it as A42-1. The Vega survived the war but was scrapped at the orders of the Department of Civil Aviation.

The FK.50 eight-passenger airliner was ordered by the general manager of Alpar whom Frits Koolhoven had met in Davos in the spring of 1935. Three examples were built for this airline from Bern, this being the prototype. The second one, HB-AMO, soon crashed during blind-flying training but was replaced by the third, HB-AMA, an FK.50A with double tailfins. The type was well liked and operated Alpar's Bern-Paris-London service as late as 1946. HB-AMI was scrapped in 1947. The FK.50A even survived until 1962 when it crashed in Liberia as EL-ADV.

This 12-passenger amphibian was owned by William K. Vanderbilt of New York City. George Vanderbilt had a Douglas Dolphin 12, and Harold Vanderbilt had a Lockheed 14-N. It is in dark blue and silver. I would say it was no coincidence that this was the special color scheme for Navy aircraft of that period used by an Admiral.
