Fokker B.II

After the Fokker B.I Fokker developed a light sea explorer that was designed as a seaplane. It was smaller than the Fokker B.I and had a stronger engine the Rolls Royce Eagle VIII rated 360 hp. One of the requirements was that the device should be suitable for a catapult start from ships. On December 15, 1923, the first flight took place from Naval Air Base Schellingwoude near Amsterdam. The B.II was tested by the Naval Aviation Service (MLD). The MLD didn't purchased the flying boat. It did not meet the requirements of the MLD. The aircraft was later scrapped. Here is the profile I made of it.

Due to the foundation of the LA (Luchtafdeling - Air Department) of the ML-KNIL in Dutch East Indies there was a need for training pilots. That is why Type TT aircraft were ordered from Martin and were delivered in March 1917. Again, it appeared that not all Hall-Scott engines were satisfactory. The last two delivered TT training aircraft (TT-5 and TT-6) were more satisfactory and the training of pilots was started at Kalidjati on Java in the Dutch East Indies. Later, all TTs were fenced into land planes. Here is the profile of the TT-6 with floats from 1917. Also here with the orange roundel and a small number six on the hull.

In 1913 the PVA ((ProefVliegAfdeeling = Test Flight Department) of the KNIL (Royal Netherlands-Indies Army) was founded. After a couple less successful tests with different aircraft, two Martin TA (Tractor Army) were ordered in may 1915 at the Glenn L . Martin Company. The first one was delivered in June 1915 and was registered with the serial-number TA-1. Only the digit 1 was painted on the tailwing. In November 1915 Lt.Flyer Henk Ter Poorten made the first flight with the TA-1 from Tandjong Priok to Rawah Penganongan on Java. The Martin TA was equipped with the Hall-Scott Type 5-A5 engine with 100 HP. The engine was to slow to fly with two persons and was later replaced by the 140HP engine.
With the succes of the TA-1 planes the PVA was dissolved and replaced by the founding of the LA (Luchtafdeling-Air department ) of the KNIL. Here is the photograph from that first flight and the profile I made of it.

Warplane Art / Curtiss H-12A Flying Boat

In June 1918 during the First World War, there was a confrontation between English and German seaplanes in the Wadden Islands, including Felixstowes. But a Curtiss plane from the English RNAS was also involved and made an emergency landing at sea on June 4, 1918 after a hit. Went ashore at Vlieland but, before it could be set on fire by the crew, it was confiscated by Dutch soldiers on the spot. The chest was interned and formally purchased at the end of 1918. This Curtiss was a H-12A and had a 350 hp Rolls Royce Eagle VIII engine. It belonged to the RNAS and had the serial number 8689. Several Curtiss H-12's were modified with a Felixstowe F.2A Hull, the 8689 had originally fins, as shown in the detail.
It went on service with the MLD with the number L-2.
