In Memoriam

Klaas Willem Jonker
† April 30, 2018

On Monday 30 April 2018, Wilko Jonker died after a long illness at the age of 58. He leaves behind a wife and two children. The Dutch military aviation and plastic modeling were his hobby and on this website he shared all the knowledge he has collected over the years. His hobby has been able to distract him from the persistent disease in his body until the last week of his life. The contacts with other hobbyists were a major support for him.

This website will be maintained by different people for as long as possible, so that other enthusiasts can continue to benefit from extensive content.

Sikorsky HO4S-3 1-SMALL
The delivery scheme of the Sikorsky HO4S-3: Overall dark sea blue, with white markings.
Initially there was no name applied on the nose of the aircraft.
Further, the "bulges" (doppler radar ?/) under the hull hadn't been applied yet and also the early light hoist was applied above the sliding door.
Who knows more about these bulges??
Sikorsky HO4S-3 2-SMALL
The second scheme of the Sikorsky HO4S-3: Sky with dark grey upper sides and black serials.
Also the name was applied in black. Note the positioning of the name might differ. Still with the early hoist.
Sikorsky HO4S-3 3-SMALL
The first paint scheme but the new serials and name in white. Still the early hoist was applied.
Sikorsky HO4S-3 4-SMALL
The last paint scheme of the Sikorsky HO4S-3: sky with dark grey upper surfaces; black serials an name.
Note the new hoist, capable of hoist larger loads.
