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.

Colour Information RNlAF

In summer of 1952 the X-1 till X-5 were delivered in bare metal with black anti-glare on the nose and inside of engine plates. Under the underside of the wing near the engines a black area of 1 m wide was applied.
Above the windows a black belt with yellow text LUCHTMACHT NEDERLAND at the left and at right the text NETHERLANDS AIR FORCE was applied.
Later, the X-2 was the first with a white roof.

In fall 1952 the American aircraft underwent major repairs and were camouflaged and equipped with squadron codes ZU. The colour s used were according to the regulations STANAG3087: Dark Green, Dark Sea Grey and PRU Blue lower (RNLAF: Donkergroen, KLu 28; Donker Zeegrijs, KLu 29 and Grijsblauw, KLu 27).
This was applied to ZU-6 till ZU-17. The camouflage pattern was prescribed in AP2656A, [RAF regulation from the Second World War for aircraft with wingspan greater than 75 feet]. Above the windows in yellow on left and right NETHERLANDS AIR FORCE UNITED STATES AIR FORCE. From March 1953 this was replaced by: Yellow letters ROYAL AIR FORCE.

From 1954 the ZU-2 till ZU-5 were overhauled and camouflaged in accordance with rules in LSK8063 (RNLAF: Dark green, KLu 28; dark sea grey, KLu 29 and medium sea grey [Donkergroen, KLu 28; Donker Zeegrijs, KLu 29 and zeegrijs, middel]) was used, however PRU blue was used uon the undersides.

In 1955 the ZU-8 and ZU-9 were converted to VIP aircraft. The camouflage paint was removed and the aircraft were completely painted in aluminum dope with serials X-8 and X-9.
Furthermore a white roof was applied and a blue band above the windows with text KONINKLIJKE LUCHTMACHT,and a day glo nose and wing tips.

in 1961 the X-2, X-3 and X10 were sent to Biak in New Guinea and later also the X-4, X-5 and X-11. These Dakotas had soon a white roof applied due to the high temperartures in the cabin.
The text KONINKELIJKE LUCHTMACHT was applied in black lettering above the windows.
