KLM is an acronym for Koninklijke Luchvaart Maatschappij or Royal Airline Company. The company was established in 1919 and is the oldest airline that still operates under its original name. The airline is one of the oldest in the world and recently celebrated its 98th year of operation. The first flight that KLM undertook was on 17 May 1920 from Croydon airport in London to Amsterdam. The airline began operating regularly scheduled flights to Jakarta in the East-Indies. The island was then known as Batavia and was still a Dutch colony. This flight held the record as the longest commercial flight until the outbreak of the second world war.

One aircraft, a Douglas DC-3 was attacked three times, on the third attack it succumb to the war and all crew and passengers were lost in the resulting crash. In an attempt to aid in the war effort, KLM put some of its planes at the disposal of the allied forces to carry people away from danger.
