The last of only five F.XVIIIs built, seen flying over Willemstad, Curaçao. This aircraft was delivered to KLM in Sep 1932 as PH-AIS "Snip". In Dec 1935 it was ferried to the West Indies, where it was reregistered as PJ-AIS in March 1936. It was withdrawn from use in 1946 and eventually broken up a year later. The forward fuselage of this rare aircraft was then donated to the Curaçao Museum in Willemstad. It was brought to Holland in 1988 for restoration by the Aviodome Museum, then returned to Curaçao in 1992 and is still <a href="http://www.airliners.net/open.file/2484095/M/" target="_blank">on display there</a> today.
