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.

Piper L-18C; L-21A and L-21B Super Cub

The Piper Super Cubs entered service during the fifties and replaced the Auster Mk. III, which was used for Army Observation and Liaison tasks.
The Pipers entered service with Squadron 298, 299 and 300 of Groep Lichte vliegtuigen (GPLV = Group Light Aircraft of the Duthc Army).

Also the type was used to train pilots for their 'Klein Militair Brevet' (elementary training). The training aircraft had an orange day-glo engine nacelle.
Further the Pipers were use by  so called "maandvliegers" (monthly pilots), mainly staff officers who wanted to maintain their flying skills.
