Viasa Douglas DC-8-53 PH-DCM

Zurich, July 1969 (Propfreak Collection)

PH-DCM was delivered new to KLM in June 1961 and named "Henry Dunant", after the founder of the Red Cross and first winner of the Peace Nobel Prize. Cooperation with Viasa Venezuela was tight and KLM DC-8s were used on the European network. KLM finally sold PH-DCM to the Venezuelan carrier in 1974. The DC-8 was broken up at Opa-Locka, Florida, in 1985.
