Photographer's Remark

Scaled down from the big F.XXXVI (F.36), the 22-passenger F.XXII was the last airliner produced by the Fokker company before WWII. It was still of mixed construction with fixed landing gear and only four examples were built. Roerdomp (bittern) became G-AFXR and HM159 as a navigation trainer in the RAF. By 1943 it was used in a transport role by No 1680 Flight. It crashed into Loch Tarbert on 3 July 1943 killing all 20 people on board. Photo from: Amsterdam City Archives
