On Tuesday 30 April 2013 between 10 and 10.30 a.m. Queen Beatrix of The Netherlands will hand over her reign to her son Willem-Alexander, the Prince of Orange, who will then become King Willem-Alexander of The Netherlands. As a tribute to the House of Orange, to which all Dutch kings and queens belonged, I will post images of aircraft with various amounts of orange in their livery.
This is the orange nose of De Havilland Canada DHC.2 Beaver Mk.I c/n 965 PH-DHC of the Royal Netherlands Air Force (RNLAF) Historic Flight at Gilze-Rijen AB in The Netherlands (EHGR) on 5 July 2011. The aircraft was built in 1955 and served with the Dutch armed forces with the registration S-9 it still wears. It went to the UK for some time as G-BUVF before it came back to the Netherlands as PH-DHC. The present official Dutch civil registration is visible in small lettering under the tail.
