2011 / HDCAM / 13.13 MIN.

In the 1970s, disguised as a steward and unarmed, then 24 year old Dutch policeman Wim Bokkers was a security officer on international KLM flights to Asia and the Middle East. This episode, which lasted only a few months, he extensively documented with slides. The Hotel Bangkok, a camel ride, the smiling crew on the airplane. The luxurious, carefree jet set world of the slides contrasts sharply with the reason for his security work: the threat posed by international terrorism. ‘It was like a wonderful vacation job’, he now says matter-of-factly about the whole experience. 1974 offers a rare glimpse into the world of security.
