    Wasn't Fokker 'banned' from building military aircraft as part of the peace agreement?

    •  Fokker got FIVE train loads of stuff (0+ / 0-)

      , mostly D.VIIs out of Germany to Holland, and yes, he was supposed to stop. Hence the splurge of high-wing Fokker transports (just look at the Fokker D. VIII high-wing monoplane fighter, then some of the earlier airliners!)
