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.

North American B-25C/D and B-25J: RAF and RNlNAS

Serial overview RNlNAS and 320 squadron RAF.

Serial overview RNlNAS

The serials of the Mitchells of the RNlNAS are rather confusing.
Well-known is the photo of Mitchell 1-18 (A-18) and Mitchell 18-1 (R-18) (shown above). At that time the serials of the Mitchell were dependent of the function of the Mitchell.
Three examples were in use for OSRD (SAR) purposes and were registered as R-1 till R-3, applied on the aircraft as 18-1 till 18-3.

Later also these three aircraft received a new serial just as the other Mitchells.

The other Mitchells were mainly used for training.
The first serial, applied on the Mitchells  were A-11 till  A-23, applied on the aircraft as 1-11 till 1-23.
In march 1950 the registration system was revised, so the remaining Mitchells receiver serials M-1 till  M-9, applied as 13-1 till 13-9.
In December of the same year a third serial change was accomplished and the remaining Mitchells received, after a complete overhaul at Aviolanda serials B-1 till B-9, applied as 2-1 till 2-9.
