KLM's first own aircraft were Fokkers but four DH.9Bs were added in 1921. These converted bombers could carry two passengers. Researcher Herman Dekker notes that construction number H9187 is unconfirmed. The aircraft might be ex G-EAUQ (H9125) instead of G-EAUO (H9187). Photo from: Amsterdam City Archives

Entry number 1 in the Netherlands register, and one of the first two aircraft owned by KLM. It is unclear why the register did not start at H-NAAA. Aircraft built at Schwerin in Germany, formerly D-57. Soon refitted with a Siddeley Puma engine as seen here. To Sabena in 1927 as O-BAIC. Photo from: Nederlands Instituut voor Militaire Historie

The F.III was a notable early airliner of which some 66 examples were built. Uniquely the pilot sat alongside the slightly offset engine, 'burning on one side and freezing on the other'. Used by then for sightseeing flights, this airframe was lost on 24 July 1928 here at Rotterdam when the pilot made too short a take-off run, hit a ship's masts and crashed into the Waalhaven harbour. One of the passengers drowned. 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 c/n as 501, later changed to 1001.

Prototype of the large twin-engined F.VIII airliner which had a 12-passenger interior in KLM service. It crashed near Sevenoaks, England after less than two months with the airline in 1927, but the company still ordered six production aircraft to serve its busiest European routes.

Formerly H-NADR (c/n 4992), an F.VIIa. Converted to F.VIIa/3m when chartered by American publisher Van Lear Black with the registration changed to H-NADP because Black had previously used F.VIIa H-NADP (4990) for a return flight to Batavia. F.VIIa/3m H-NADP (4992) used for an aborted flight to Cape Town in May 1928. Afterwards converted to F.VIIb/3m with new c/n 5105. To Black as G-AADZ 1 February 1929.

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 15,000-km route in addition to the mail. PH-AIV Valk (falcon) has been put up horizontally for an inspection by Queen Wilhelmina. The comfy chairs, courtesy suitcases and catering provisions are also on display outside for the media, including the Polygoon cinema newsreel. Photo from: Amsterdam City Archives

Seating up to 20 passengers the F.IX was Fokker's largest trimotor airliner. There was little wrong with the design but Its appearance coincided with the Great Depression and only two examples were built for KLM. The Avia company in Czechoslovakia built the type under licence as an airliner and bomber. Photo from: Haags Gemeentearchief

One of a few oddballs in the KLM fleet by Koolhoven, the other Dutch manufacturer. The FK.40 was a domestic airliner designed to carry up to six passengers, but the sole example was given a spacious interior for four. It was sold to a private pilot in 1936 and ended up in the Spanish Civil War. Photo from: ETH-Bibliothek Zürich

Speed or comfort? Announced together with the luxurious F.XXXVI (F.36) in December 1932, the F.XX (F.20) was the only prewar Fokker airliner with retractable landing gear. Like its big sister, it was not ordered in series by KLM which opted for the metal DC-2. The only example, KLM's Zilvermeeuw (herring gull) is best known for going tech on 18 December 1933, an F.XVIII, PH-AIP Pelikaan, making a hyped Christmas mail flight to the Netherlands East Indies instead. Despite carrying the legend Holland-Java on its belly, the F.XX served on European routes. It ended up with the Spanish airline LAPE and crashed at Barcelona - El Prat in February 1938.

KLM's London to Melbourne Air Race adventure might very well have ended in disaster when Uiver got caught in a thunderstorm at night. Thanks to the townsfolk of Albury, the DC-2 was able to land safely, and here Captain Parmentier is seen taking off from the racecourse, leaving the rest of the crew and the payload behind. This was possibly against the race rules but no one seems to have protested. Photo from: State Library Victoria
