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.

Hansa-Brandenburg W.12

An example of this type made an emergency landing near Rottumeroog on April 22, 1918. It was interned and received the registration W1.

It was a good float plane with good flying characteristics and it was used as an example for the later Van Berkel, WA.
