"Utrecht" in KLM service 1950-1963. From the good old days, when boarding passengers walked across the taxiways ! A treasure from my father's collection. This beauty is awaiting her passengers. Destination Warsaw, as posted on the steps !

My mother wrote in her dairy on this day (11/7/1957) and approx. 2 years before I arrived in this world: Mijn verjaardag vandaag ! Met Fons naar Warschau met de KLM. Een vliegtuig met drie staarten. ( In English: My birthday today ! With Fons (name of my father) to Warsaw with KLM on a plane with three tails.)
After l also found KLM's time table of July 1957 confirming this flight and plane type flying this route on a Thursday, I'm 99.9% sure my parents were on this flight for a short holiday to Polish relatives of my mother.
I treasure this photograph !
