PH-ASR  Douglas DC-3                                                   (c/n  2110)


                               The Netherlands, like most other northern Europeans nations, attempted to identify their air-
                               liners during the so-called "phony war" of late 1939 and early 1940 with "neutrality" markings.
                               The aircraft were painted orange overall for greater visibility, with the name of the nation embold-
                               ened on the upper fuselage.   To no avail, of course, since Holland was overrun in May of 1940
                               by the advancing Wehrmacht.  PH-ASR was captured undamaged and passed to the Luftwaffe
                               becoming VE+RR.   Its final fate is unknown.
