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 G.I

History

Text about the development.

Versions.

The commonly used terms Fokker G-IA and Fokker G-IB are no authentic Fokker designations and in fact incorrect. These are most attributed to Hugo Hooftman.
Fokker designated the machines of the LVA, equipped with Mercury engines, as Fokker GI "Mercury". These devices differed from the prototype. Because of the bigger engine and larger propeller, the wing section between the fuselage and the engine nacelle was greater. The fuselage was also different.
The machines equipped with Wasp engines were designated Fokker G.I "Wasp". These aircraft were dimensionally similar to the prototype.
