It was shot at a time when relations between the Republic of Indonesia and the Netherlands were not very friendly. Later there were aircraft painted in KLM-colours on one side and Garuda Indonesian Airways on the other. Preferably the captain should land with the right side to the Airline buildings. Not much later Garuda were able to run the Airline satisfactorily themselves.
