A suggestion.

Well in advance as this ere forum works that way and it takes time to get the required numbers

A 'Fokker' GB in 2022

I noticed that Antony Fokker started his first company on 22nd February 1912

So 2022 will 110 years of Fokker

There are plenty of models, from the E.I / II / III / IV series, the ubiquitous Dr.1, D. VII and the D.XXI to the F.27 and all sorts of numbers and types in between.

 

Anyone for it?

 

1. Black Knight (me of course)

2. Corsairfoxfouruncle

3. ?

4. ??

5. ??

A World War II pilot is reminiscing before school children about his days in the air force.

"In 1942," he says, "the situation was really tough. The Germans had a very strong air force. I remember, " he continues, "one day I was protecting the bombers and suddenly, out of the clouds, these fokkers appeared.

I looked up, and right above me was one of them. I aimed at him and shot him down. They were swarming. I immediately realized that there was another fokker behind me."

At this instant the girls in the auditorium start to giggle and boys start to laugh. The teacher stands up and says, "I think I should point out that 'Fokker' was the name of the German-Dutch aircraft company"

 

"That's true," says the pilot, "but these fokkers were Messerschmidts."

I've seen this attributed (wrongly) to Douglas Bader. Memorably Stan Boardman ("the Jairmans") told the tale to a clearly hugely embarrassed Des O'Connor in the 80s. Boardman wasn't seen on TV much after that! 😁

BTW @Black Knight sign me up, I have a Fw 190 that'll tick the box!

 

EDIT: I have got completely the wrong end of the stick here, haven't I? 🤣

Ha! That was my first thought too, then I realised...

 

However I do have some DVIIs and Eindeckers in the stash and I do like small airliners, so sign me up 😁
