Fokker B.I/B.II Serial Assistance

Hello,


Currently for sale on ebay at:


https://www.ebay.de/itm/33x-REPRO-Fo...8AAOSwOeBeIgrE


are a number of reproduction images. At the bottom of the collection is an image of a Fokker B.I/B.II with a serial number which I read as B.1374/15. But I'm uncertain and would welcome second opinions. The nearest Fokker B Type serials I have seen to this serial are in the B.1356/15 to B.1360/15 range and the source may not be reliable. Between these aircraft and B.1374/15 (if I read it correctly are a series of Euler B.II B.1361/15 to B.1372/15.


Has anyone seen any other photos of Fokker B Types in the B.1373/15 to B.1379/15 range?


TIA,


Clint

I agree with you Clint

Certainly this is B.1374/15

Looking through my Fokker B type photos in German markings showing actual Bestellnummer, I came up empty handed!

I have taken the liberty to ask the seller if he can verify the actual serialnumber for us.

Cheers
Stig

Hi Stig,


Thanks for the query to the seller.


I'm wondering if the Fokker B.I/B.II have been covered in any of the relevant periodicals dealing with WW.I aircraft.Did Peter M Grosz ever publish anything anywhere on Fokker B types?As far as I'm aware there's nothing in book form with the serial numbers.Hopefully Aeronaut extend their coverage to Fokker before too long, though I believe Halberstadt will be the next manufacturer covered. Looking forward to coverage of the B Types of Halberstadt when that happens.


Regards,


Clint

Sorry Clint

If Peter Grosz ever did something on the Fokker B-types (outside what's in his small general book with Volker Koos) it is unknown to me.

Trainers usually generate quite a low interest from even enthusiast, so they are basically less researched than the more "sexy" types. Never understood why really, since if it wasn't for trainers, well there would be very little flying done at all....

Yes, let's hope Jack Herris continues with his range of German manufacturers.
Pity they are mostly pictorials, but as long as all known Bestellnummer are listed, I am happy!

Cheers
Stig
