B. Van Der Klaauw - Frustrated Fokker /Warbirds/
T Vs and D XXI fighters at Schiphol during the mobilisation period in September 1939. It is noteworthy that the aircraft were lined up along the edge of the perimeter track, presenting an ideal target for any intruder with malicious intent.
The first aircraft photographed on 27 September 1937 immediately after final assembly at Schiphol. This aircraft was to be shot down on the second day of Dutch participation in WWII, being, in fact, one of the last two surviving examples of its genre.
