Product description

Please note that at least 3 Hickories were used in 1945/46 in Dutch East Indies by both the Dutch armed forces as well as the infamous "Arens Airlines"

On September 13th, 1945 Herman Arens was the first pilot to land on Batavia and was one of the first Dutchman to visit the Japanese POW camps in September 1945 where his wife to be, Ans, also was inprisoned for three years. The POW's gave him messages for their relatives. It's because of Arens the first signs of life came out.
Herman Arens was given the job of the so-called RAPWI-flights (Recovery of Allied prisoners of War and Internees) and manages to impound a couple of Japanse traffic aircraft to, together with Japanse pilots, endorse these flights.

Here the Hickories where used!   Indeed an unkonown but important piece of Dutch Aviation history
