DH89B Dominie #6740 NF869 'Gelderland' flew with the Dutch Air Force between 1944 and 1952. First with 1316 (Allied) Flight RAF, then after the war with the LSK (early Dutch Air Force). 1948 it flew for a while as PH-RAE as a government aircraft, before going back to the airforce as V-3 'Gelderland' with no.1 TransVA. It was taken off charge in 1952, and in 1968 was transported to the Dutch Air Force museum in Soesterberg, where it can still be seen today. This paint shows 'Gelderland' as it looked in the winter of 1946, when it was used for relief flight to the Dutch islands that had become isolated when the Waddensea froze over.
