Remark Photographer
1902 (cn 607) Twelve 16-22 seat DC-5's were built in 1939/40 with KLM being the only civil operator. The U.S. Navy bought seven new examples of the R3D and the prototype was impressed by them. 1902 was delivered to NAS Anacostia in July 1940. It is seen visting the US Weat Coast wearing Anacostia titles. The U.S. national marking had no bars at this time and was not marked on the fuselage. Taken by F. Shertzer and image given to me by William T. Larkins 40 years ago for publication. No DC-5's survive..

So few of these aircraft were built, none survive. Therefore any photograph with reasonable clarity and detail rates a 4 or 5; in my opinion.
