Fokker G.I Replica (330) as used by the Dutch Army Aviation Group (LVA) at the Military Aviation Museum, Kamp Zeist (the Netherlands)

The Fokker G.I was a Dutch heavy twin-engined fighter plane comparable in size and role to the German Messerschmitt Bf-110 and the
British Mosquito. Although in production prior to World War II, its combat introduction came at a time when the Netherlands was overrun.
The few Fokker G.I's that were mustered into service were able to score some victories, but ultimately many aircraft were captured intact after the Germans had occupied the Netherlands. The remainder of the production run was taken over by the Luftwaffe as trainers. The G.I, given the nickname "le Faucheur" (Reaper in French), was designed as a private venture in 1936 by Fokker chief engineers Marius Beeling and Erich Schatzki. Like all Fokker aircraft of that period, the G.I was of mixed construction; the front of the central pod were built around a welded frame, covered with aluminium plating. The back of the central pod, however, as well as the wings, were completely constructed with wood. There are no surviving G.I's today, although a replica has been built and was displayed at the Military Aviation Museum (MLM) at Kamp Zeist (Camp Zeist) until 2013.
Nowadays, it is in storage at the National Military Museum (NMM), the new museum located at Soesterberg.
