Fokker C.I

24k b/w Fokker-C.I from Naval Aviation Museum Foundation collection;

Biplane reconnaissance two-seater aircraft, very obviously a development of the D-VII fighter. Single controls set in pilot's cockpit. Additional fuel tank was installed on the landing gear axel.

The C.I was too late to enter service with the German air force. After the end of WWI, Anthony Fokker managed to transfer a number of aircraft and spare parts to the Netherlands.

250 were built, including 42 for the Soviet air force and 62 for the Dutch air force. In the USSR served as a trainer during 1923- 1925.
