In Memoriam

Klaas Willem Jonker
† 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.


This type was a more sophisticated development of the Albatros C.I. It was used for various purposes, such as reconnaissance and light bomber.
It mainly differed from its predecessor in the revised tail construction. Several engines used as the Benz Bz. III rated 150 hp or a 160 hp Mercedes D.II.
Not unusual at that time, cut the cylinder and the exhaust above the hull.
The observer had a 7.92 mm Parabellum machine gun. Later versions had a synchronized 7.92 mm LMG 08/15 machine gun.
The aircraft could carry a bomb load of about 91 kg.
