PH-ASR Douglas DC-3
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.
