The PH-MAD was the first Dove owned by Martin's Air Charter. In 1964 MAC bought Fairways Rotterdam. MAC needed the Fairways DC-3's urgently for its charterflights.The PH-MAD replaced the C-47 on the line Rotterdam-Southampton with the name "Fairways Rotterdam" instead of "Martin's Air Charter Ltd" on the fuselage. End 1964 however one stopped the service and the plane was painted again in the newest MAC- levery and mainly used for pleasure-flights over Amsterdam. After that sold to the UK.
