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.

Pander D


When the aircraft factory NVI went bankrupt in 1924, the staff and property were taken over by furniture factory Pander and housed in Dutch Aircraft Factory H. Pander & Zonen.
The Holland H2 design, derived from the Carley C.12 was further developed and released as Pander D. This was a small single shoulder wing monoplane with a three-cylinder Anzani engine of 30 hp.
The Pander D was sleeker, had a rounder hull and revised wings.
The wooden wing was one piece with two main girders. The monocoque hull consisted of triplex.
The Pander D made its First flight on November 16, 1924, and was shown for the first time in public at the 1925 air show at Paris.

In the end ten examples were built. Six of them for the civil market and two examples for the Dutch Navy and two examples for the NEIAF.
