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.
Aérospatiale SA 365 C1 Dauphin 2 c/n 5053 in the colours of Schreiner Airways and with the fake registration PH-SAW at the Aviodrome museum at Lelystad airport in The Netherlands (EHLE), photographed on 29 July 2012. The helicopter was built in 1971 and first registered in the US as N3610B. It went to Schreiner Airways on 23 April 1981 with the registration PH-SSC. On 30 April 1982 it it was exported to Argentina and registered LV-APO. It returned to Schreiner on 21 January 1986, but only briefly, as the Spanish firm Helisca started operating the helicopter from 25 March 1986 as EC-DYU . In 2005 it returned to The Netherlands and was handed over to the Aviodrome museum in Schreiner colours and the fake registration PH-SAW.
