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.

Sopwith Pup

A example of this type, with RNAS registration N6164, landed on March 1, 1917 near Cadzand.
It entered service with the LVA registration LA41.
On May 23, 1917 was compared with the Spijker V.1. The result was such that the type was considered to be built under license by Trompenburg, but the director H. Wijnmalen, preferred the Nieuport XI.
In 1918, a new registration system was achieved and the Pup received the new serial S212.
