An iconic photo of the citizens of Albury towing Uiver out of the mud, allowing the KLM DC-2 to take off and finish in second place in the London to Melbourne Air Race. Pilots Parmentier and Moll had managed a hairy emergency landing on the local racecourse, lit by the headlights of private car owners, during the night. Photo from: Tropenmuseum

This is the genuine PH-AJU Uiver. After winning the handicap section of the Mildenhall to Melbourne air race, the aircraft made several goodwill flights before departing back to Batavia (Jakarta). In 1934, Cootamundra was a hub for air mail services from Europe, which is why it was one of the towns to receive a visit. PH-AJU crashed in poor weather near Rutbah Wells, Iraq, on December 20, 1934.

The largest Fokker aircraft ever in terms of wing area, the F.XXXVI (F.36) could accomodate four crew and 32 passengers, or 16 with pairs of seats converted to couches. Still of mixed construction with man-sized non-retractable mainwheels, it was not ordered in quantity by KLM president Albert Plesman who turned to the Douglas DC-2 for the Holland-Java route. The sole F.36, Arend (eagle) was used on the European network. Sold to Scottish Aviation in 1939 as G-AFZR, it crashed at Prestwick on 21 May 1940.

Schiphol in 1935, view towards the north. Although still muddy, the airfield is becoming a tourist attraction. Beyond the terrace is a Fokker D.XVI fighter. An old KLM F.VIIa is also seen. The DC-2 is named Koetilang, Malay for bulbul bird, reflecting the importance of the East Indies to KLM and to Dutch society in general. Aircraft destroyed by bombing here on 10 May 1940.

Scaled down from the big F.XXXVI (F.36), the 22-passenger F.XXII was the last airliner produced by the Fokker company before WWII. It was still of mixed construction with fixed landing gear and only four examples were built. Roerdomp (bittern) became G-AFXR and HM159 as a navigation trainer in the RAF. By 1943 it was used in a transport role by No 1680 Flight. It crashed into Loch Tarbert on 3 July 1943 killing all 20 people on board. Photo from: Amsterdam City Archives

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.

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's DC-3 PH-ARB "Buizerd" escaped from Schiphol during the Nazi invasion of Holland in early May 1940.

From KLM 60 years ago.
