Focke Wulf FW-200 B-5 KLM

After the German attack of Belgium and France the neutral Dutch government was very careful to maintain its neutrality in all things. This also meant that the Dutch airline KLM bought aircraft from both US and German origin.

Next to the American DC-2 and DC-3s the KLM bought the Heinkel He-116 and Focke Wulf FW-200 to fly on its international routes.

The FW-200 first flew for the KLM in 1940 and remained in service until it was replaced with the Junkers Ju-290 airliner in 1947.
