PH-DFK Douglas DC-6B
job this is a DC-6B. A smaller aircraft could not have
accomodated the name of "Jan Huyghen
van Linshoten" (a 16th century
Dutch voyager). In presenting my collection by registration
however, the re-registrations
which occured in 1954 tend to throw off the historical sequence, if one
views them one by one..
This aircraft was built in 1952 as PH-TFK. Synonomous with the
change came the white tops.
The DC-6Bs served KLM for a decade and were then sold off, this one
going to Adria Aviapromet in
Jugoslavia as YU-AFE. Several owners later it was finally
in Keflavik Iceland, in 1975.
