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.

Fokker C.I

In service with LVA and RNlNAS.

In service with LVA.

The LVA ordered 60 examples at the end of 1919, all aircraft were delivered in 1920 and were registered 485 till 544. The so called "de fabriek" (=Factory, in fact the technical service) of the LVA at Soesterberg, built an additional five examples, registered 545 till 549, from spare parts.
At the end of the twenties several examples were completely overhauled and equipped with an Armstrong-Siddeley Lynx rated 218 hp. Also a modification of the fuselage and the landing gear was done. This modified version was officially designated Fokker C.IA, but was also referred to as Fokker C.I Lynx.

The aircraft was also used as trainer for the fighter pilots. After a training on the Fokker S.II or Fokker S.IV the fighter pilots received a conversion training on the Fokker C.I. The C.I trainers were equipped with double steering, the movable gun was removed and rear part of the fuselage was flattened.
