In Memoriam

Klaas Willem Jonker
(Wilko)
† 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.

Introduction

On this personal website you can find all kinds of information about Dutch military aircraft.

This are planes used by the Royal Netherlands Naval Air Service, referred to as RNlNAS (Marine Luchtvaart Dienst = MLD), used by the Royal Netherlands Air Force, referred to as RNlAF (Koninklijke Luchtmacht = KLu) and its predecessors and also aircraft used by the Royal Netherlands-East-Indies Air Force, referred to as RNEIAF ( ML-KNIL = Militaire Luchtvaart van het Koninklijk Nederlands-Indisch Leger)).


As far as it concerns the RNlAF I refer to RNlAF after World War II and to LVA (Luchtvaart-Afdeeling = Airforce divison of the Dutch Army) before the second World War. I am aware that this is historically not correct, because the Dutch Air Force had its name changed several times.

Also available on this site are the aircraft used by the Dutch RAF squadrons during the second world war, such as squadron 320, squadron 321, squadron 322 and also Dutch Communications Flight and the Dutch Auster squadron.

Just before the second World War several civil aircraft were 'claimed'; these aircraft are not all in this listing, partly because I have hardly any or no information about these aircraft and also because I think these aircraft were not owned.

Also the so called "sleutelkisten", aircraft used by the technical services and training and never flew operational with Dutch markings are not mentioned.

Also hired aircraft, such as training aircraft used by the RNlNAS, are not mentioned on this site.


Further a note concerning the dates mentioned. In several occasions I have mentioned a date with the first day of the month. 
In most occasions I mean that the exact date is unknown, but (most probably) is somewhere during that month.

The dates are given in European style (dd-mm-yyyy) and also numbers are given also in European style.

In case you have some information for me, corrections or just a question, you can contact me via  contact page

 

I hope you enjoy your visit to my website.
