The Germans removed a number of Fokker aircraft from Denmark. I believe that it was D VII and used them on the eastern front.

Denmark has in its operational use Fokker D. XXI fighter. As trainer few Fokker D.VII was kept in service but not in Denmark. I am wonder how the air claim like this could be happen?

Might have been a latter Fokker,Fokker CV or other type.
