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.


Albatros B. II was designed by Ernst Heinkel. The B.II was released at about the outbreak of the war and was widely used.
It had a smaller wingspan than the Albatros B.I
Two versions were built, Series 21 and Series 22, which differed from each other mainly by the more powerful engine and a number of constructive changes.
After 1915, the plane was gradually phased out, but remained in use as a trainer for some time.


During the production it was fitted with different engines.
Also a float version was built under the designation Albatros B.IIW.
A trainer version with a larger wingspan and another engine was designated Albatros B. IIa
