KLM Royal Dutch Airlines had 23 Lockheed Super Constellations in its fleet from 1953 till mid 1962.(9 C's, 4 E's, 6 G's and 3 H's) The latest version L-1049H was a combiplane(mixed freight and passengers) with two freightdoors. The three L-1049H's of the KLM entered service in 1958 and due to the arrival of the DC-8's from 1960 onwards, out of service in 1962. Its R-3350 engines were complicated and difficult to maintain. Partly because of this and the arrival of the first generation jetliners, the second hand L-1049 were nearly unsalable. The PH-LKN was the last L-1049H in the KLM-fleet and out of service in July 1962. Eventually it was sold in Mai 1966 to Flying Tiger Line in the USA.
