A rare one: originally delivered to Philippine Airlines in 1962 but was immediately stored in Las Vegas, and later leased to KLM in the same year as PH-DCR. After flying for Philippine from 1967 it returned to KLM in 1972 for a 3 year lease. From 1983 onwards it flew for African Air Charter, and was scrapped at Kinshasa in 1988.
