Today just a small, but nice photograph of the Fokker F-32 N334N (c/n 1204)

We have received this fantastic photograph, which was placed in the ‘Melbourne Herald’ of July 21, 1930 with the following text: “Fuel, Oil, pressure greasing, water, anti-freese compressed air, towing, beacon and flood light service for airplanes on American landing fields, now is furnished by a fleet of Dodge Brothers’ two-ton trucks operated by the Shell Petroleum Co. Three of the trucks are shown here with the latest giant 32-passengers Fokker transport plane”.

What a great plane and what great trucks.

Just one of the many photographs which will be published in the forthcoming book: “The Fokker Fours” – about the four-engine aircraft (built and projects) of Fokker in the USA and Europe.

Great book about the four-engined Fokker F-32, F.36 and F.22 and other similar projects. Coming soon!
