Warplane Art / Van Berkel WA
« on: December 11, 2020, 07:06:07 PM »
The story of the Van Berkel WA begins with an emergency landing of a German Hansa-Brandenburg W.12 float plane in April 1918 near the Wadden Islands. It was confiscated by the Dutch government. Van Berkel Patent, known for precision scales and meat slicers, was willing to set up an aircraft construction department, specifically for this aircraft, in order to supply seaplanes for the Naval Aviation Service (MLD). It became the Van berkel WA. The first flight took place in September 1919. The WA remained in service until 1933. The biplane float plane was first used as a fighter but later used as a scout, both in the Netherlands and in the Dutch East Indies. The MLD largely deployed the WA in the Dutch East Indies in order to increase the flight services in the Indian archipelago.
The first aircraft were still equipped with the neutrality orange roundel and later they were provided with the tricolor rosette.
Here are 2 aircraft, the W3 and the W17, used in the Dutch East Indies.

Here is the Glenn Martin Type S Scout plane in its original form, as it is in the photo when purchased by the MLD with the carburettor to the left of the fuselage.

Glenn Martin built the Type S Scout in 1915. This type, designed by Donald Douglas, was a direct 1915 development of the Glenn-Martin TT with a different engine and aillerons in the upper wings. It was a two-seater observation aircraft. The Dutch Navy was looking for planes with floats for sea flight training. In America they visited the Martin factories and ordered 6 Type S models. The J1-J6. The aircraft were equipped with the Hall-Scott L6 125 HP engines. They were used in the Netherlands for reconnaissance purposes. The aircraft were assembled at the company Trompenburg. This is where the J1 of the MLD is stationed at De Mok in 1917. This profile of the J1 has the view where the carburettor later was moved to the front and changes had been made to the suspension of the wings.

The Type R model indicated earlier by me is derived from the S.

Wright-Martin two-seater flying boat Type "R" was designed for reconnaissance purposes, 1916-1919.
In the summer of 1915 it was decided after a short investigation to purchase a number of aircraft. In mid-1917 they arrived in parts and were set up at Schellingwoude. From October 1917 they went to De Mok and the aircraft were used as scouts. The Marine Aviation Service had two aircraft in use, the H1 and the H2. Here the H1 at the Mok airport.
