KLM Aircraft History

Thu May 10, 2007 3:45 am

There's a nice photo of a KLM Convair 340 at Dubrovnik on the A.net homepage:

I was just wondering if anyone could tell me when KLM operated the Convairs. I'm reasonably familiar with the dates of operation (+/- a year or two) of the jet fleet, e.g. DC9s (1966-86), but I'm not too familiar with their prop fleet?

Is there a website that would give the airline's fleet and type history?

No website known to me.
In the book "KLM de geschiedenis van de KLM vanaf 1919 (the history of KLM from 1919) I found this information:
