The Douglas DC5 was a high performance, short range, feederliner. The only airline to proceed with an order for the DC-5 was KLM who purchased four for use into Amsterdam. However the invasion of Holland caused their DC-5s to be delivered equally to KLM in the Dutch West Indies and KNILM in the Dutch East Indies instead. By late 1941 all were in the Dutch East Indies, the two ex-KLM WI aircraft (PK-ADC and PK-ADD) retaining their KLM livery.

In 1942 one was captured by the IJAAF. The three others escaped to Australia. They were soon in use with 21 sqn RAAF and Ansett-ANA supplying ANZAC forces in New Guinea. Impressed by the USAAF 1944-45 they were then designated Douglas C-110s. One returned to Ansett-ANA serving in New Guinea 1946-47 before being sold to New Holland Airways. The prototype was converted to KLM production standard and was based in Seattle as Bill Boeing's corporate VIP aircraft from April 1940. It was impressed by the USN for VIP transport duties in February 1942 becoming the only R3D-3 until its sale for scrap in January 1946. These are textures only. You will require the FS2004 KLM Douglas DC-5 (DC-5_V2.ZIP). Original textures by Wayne Tudor, revised by Maarten Brouwer.

  • Put the file texture.KNILM into the file of your DC-5.
  • Then just paste the text below into the aircraft.cfg file of your DC-5 folder. Don't forget to replace the X into the rotation number. E.G. [fltsim.4]
