Fokker F.VII (F.7)
One of the most important aircraft in the history of world aviation is the Fokker F.VII. Many pioneering flights were undertaken with the Fokker F.VII as a single-engined or a three-engined aircraft, or with its Americanised version, the C-2. The difference with many other pioneering flights was that the Fokkers were essentially normal airliners, while many others of these flights were performed with specially developed aircraft with no other practical use.
The performances of the F.VII as a pioneer attracted much attention of the airlines. In the late 1920s and the early 1930s the Fokker F.VII was the workhorse of many airlines all over the world. Apart from the records and firsts the F.VII was a good looking aircraft. Although I have never seen a F.VII in flight, there is reason enough for this aircraft type to become one of my favourites.
