Netherlands to Indonesia

November is National History Month!

Aviation history fun fact: On this day in 1924, a Fokker F. VII, landed in Indonesia after a 55-day adventure flying all the way from the Netherlands. With a total of 127 flight hours and numerous intermediate stopovers, the plane touched down in Jakarta to a hero’s welcome, having demonstrated that it was possible to bridge an enormous distance with such an aircraft.
