    The photo was taken at Waalhaven airport, the former airport of Rotterdam in the Netherlands. I think the big man in the picture is Frits Koolhoven, the Dutch airplane designer and manufacturer.

  2. Philippe Vigneron says:

    The aircraft shown is Charles Fauvel’s AV-10 as seen during testing by KLM. This aircraft beats two altitude records for aircraft equipped with an engine of less than 4 liters, both in the two seat and single seat categories.

    Just a question: Do we know which exact date this photo was taken?
