Когда этот самолет D-1089 находился в эксплуатации авиакомпании "Deutsche Lufthansa", он носил собственное название "Hestia". Позже он был доведен до стандарта G.24ge и применялся в летной школе под новым регистрационным номером D-ADOX.

Голландский авиаконструктор и предприниматель Энтони Фоккер быстро понял, что на одних военных заказах в уставшей от мировой бойни Европе не проживешь, и потому вскоре разработал пассажирский самолет F.II.
Fokker-Grulich F.II D-756 Dievenow had a BMW IV engine. DLH took over 19 F.IIs in 1926 and named them after German rivers. One of them also served as a crop-duster.
