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.

Taylorcraft L-2 Grasshopper

Both aircraft were initially overall ANA 613 Olive Drab. I have seen just one photo of the TCO-011 in e.g. the book of Hugo Hooftman, showing a rather dark coloured aircraft with black serials.
In the book "Army Co-operation bij de Militaire Luchtvaart in Indië 1946 - 1950 written by P.C. Boer, a photo us shown of the R-334. The aircraft seems to be of a light colour with black serials.
