Notes

Fokker B.V., the Netherlands Aerospace Company, was founded on July 21, 1919 by Anthony Fokker, the legendary aviation pioneer. Fokker airliners have contributed significantly to the development of commercial aviation. During the last few decades Fokker has specialized in the development, production, and support of short to medium haul airliners. Fokker B.V. went bankrupt during the late Spring of 1996.
