 Definition A Dutch airplane manufacturing company founded in 1912 by Anthony Fokker. [d] [e]

Split off Anthony Fokker

I chose to start a new article about Anthony Fokker, this to separate the history of the man and the organization.

Overview of Fokker-built aircraft

Once Citizendium grows each aircraft could (theoretically) get it's own page/article in citizendium. Untill then I try to get the overview for Fokker complete, both aircraft as well as projects. This can be a staging area for writing articles on Fokker aircraft.

Which of these Fokker logos are authentic?

If all of them are, let me know.

And what is going on in the photo at http://rhein-zeitung.de/on/96/03/16/topnews/fokker.html ?

I think it says Fokker is bankrupt, and he's covering up or removing a logo. --Robert W King 14:28, 2 February 2008 (CST)

See my remarks in bold behind the pictures. About the last picture; Probably this photo is taken when the DASA company (then the Fokker mother company) pulled the plug and Fokker went bankrupt. My German is bad, but that is basically the story told in the text, so this picture could be taken around march 1996. Although even many years after Fokker went bunkrupt and was split/sold, I encountered the Fokker logo on many (former) buildings, so I am not sure about the date.
