|What was new on these pages|
Added some amazing pictures coming from Mr. Baarschers, nephew
of a crewmember on the Do-24 in the Dutch East Indies. This resulted
in pictures being added to the following pages: Werk
Nr. 775, 774 and
768 and Do-24K.
Also added was a story about
the crash of the X-15 on June
3rd 1939 as told by Baarschers in a letter to his parents.
More private collection pictures come from Walter Hunneshagen of Seenotstaffel 7 with contributions to Werk Nr. 159 and the Do-24T page.
Finally added a page on the reunion of september 2003.
Lastly added a bit of "info" and alteration to the ATT page.
Back after a long holiday in Italy and Germany where I had the
chance to visit the Oberschleissheim museum and Friedrichshafen.
In Oberschleissheim Gerhard Filchner had a surprise waiting for
me, I was allowed inside the Do-24T-3
undergoing preservation, a real treat for which I will be forever
grateful. All in all I took more than 100 foto's. During the
returnvoyage from Italy, where I unfortunately missed the ATT in Marina di Pisa by one day
I visited Friedrichshafen where on the airport I saw the ATT in her new glory. I've added
30 pictures to the site. All I can say is that Mr. Dornier and
his technicians have done one fine job with this bird! If you're
near a place this bird stops on her worldtrip you've gotta see
Finally I've added two pictures of Werk Nr. 165 in Kirkenes thanks to Yngve Gronvik.
Back after a long while, this time with updates regarding the
Do-24ATT which has arrived in the
Phillippines and has flown for the first time after the restoration
early februari, and there is more great news regarding this aircraft,
check the Do-24ATT page. I discovered
that my webspace has run out, so in order to use the webspace
to the full I have had to move the museum pages.
With the help of Nol Baarschers I was able to ad a small bit of information to Werk Nr. 71. His uncle was the pilot of this aircraft and he himself was named after his uncle. Recently he discovered an enormous amount of material including a huge amound of pictures. In due time these will be added to the site, we of course have to give Mr. Baarschers the first look at the about 100 documents he has in his posession.
With the help of Pleun Punt who supplied me with information from a book called "Van Aviolanda tot Fokker", which was written by P. van Wijngaarden and published in 1987. The updates regarded the following Werk Nummern: 71, 79 and 3296.
Regular visitors might have seen the change in the opening page
a few months back. An update das been long in the waiting, but
after my mother died in march it took a long time for me to pick
things again. I hope you can understand.
Anyway the update for June 2003: I was able to make a start with the production pages of the 40 post-war French built aircraft all with tremendous help from Hugues de Pouqueville and Yves Gouriten. They also supplied me with information regarding the French units with wich the Do-24 flew. Pictures of Do-24's in French service are on their way, also thanks to Hugues and Yves!!!
Added the beginning of the auto-biografy of Karl-Heinz Lüdtke. The biografy might look finished but he promised me there were more adventures to tell, so we will wait for that. The ATT is on the move, April 25th I went to visit the aircraft when she was in Antwerp harbour awaiting further transportation to the Phillippines. Of course a lot of pictures have been added of the Do-24ATT, also containing pictures made by Marc Verleysen of the company who stores the aircraft and made pictures before and during unloading. The pictures can be found on the special Antwerp page.
I only just noticed the date of the update, the birthdate of my father who passed away in 1986, what irony.
|12/02/2003||Well, you can't always plan updates as I found out. My wife got very ill, but fortunately she's almost recovered now. Anyway time for a new update. Added information to Wern Nummern 99, 115, 166, 1132, 3261 & 3305 and adding a page about the 3Y+JT. Thanks to Iosif Clorman for the information. Added some new information to the Oberschleißheim and Oberpfaffenhofen pages, thanks to Gerhard Filchner for that. I'm currently running up a large back catalogue of updates sent to me by various people. I can't thank you enough for the information but time has been very short in adding this information to the site. One of the first updates will feature two memoires, both of mechanics during the war. One of those is very extensive and consumed most of my spare time to translate.|
|30/09/2002||Back after the reunion of the Seenotdienst, great stories and new material for the site. One reference added is the flugbuch of Werner Drees. Also added 11 pictures of the Do-24 in Madrid with great thanks to Mikael Olrog for the pictures.|
|04/07/2002||A small but significant update to a few production pages: 164, 1M+IQ, 1M+RK, 3Y+JT, S5+CK, S5+FK, S5+KK and S5+LK. Added a few unknown Werk Nummern to the productionlist. The search for a new server is looking promising, more on that later.|
Unfortunately My provider decided to change the ammount of traffic
my site may have. I have thought a long time about this and decided
to give up the high resolution pictures and reduce all big pictures.
This is the only way to give more people a chance to visit the
site. If anyone wants bigger versions of pictures on the site
then please mail me. On a happier note, I just received an invitation
to the Seenotdienst reunion in September and I'm looking forward
to that big time.
An update will come shortly, please be patient, thanks.
|17/03/2002||Added/updated info on the following Werk Nummern: 143, 164, 176, 2104, 2126, 3232, 3237, 3263 and 3308. Added some information on the Dutch units GVT 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 & 8 (thanks to Dr. Leo Niehorster). Added some missing information to the museumpage of Cosford (thanks to Dave West).

Added one more book to the reference list (thanks to Johan Lemmers), other contributions coming from Ralf Beyer, Remco Gerbrands and Benno Goethals. There are no words big enough to express my gratitude, THANK YOU! I added some information to the Do-318 page, not a lot, but still very interesting. Also added a page for the Do-72 variant, no info yet though.

Added one color picture to the Do-24T page and uploaded a bigger version of another color picture, which you can find here.
|23/05/2001||Ok, back after a few weeks of vacation, been to visit the reunion of the Seenotdienst in Friedrichshafen, one big ball, all those nice people, all those stories, an overwhelming load of information that will take a while to all be fully integrated in these pages. Have a few contacts now for a more detailed study of one or more people. Added 10 books to the reference page (it's been a good month, specially thanks to J.L. Roba!!!). Added information to Werk Nummern 1033, 1075, 1108, 115, 123, 2103, 2111, 2112, 3331, 79, 90, 103, 128, 84 and 782. Added pages about known registrations with no known Werk Nummern: 1M+IQ, 1M+RK, J9+DA, J9+EA, J9+HA, Q8+AC and Q8+EA. Also updated the production list registration list and the museum list, the USA page had been updated with not too good news! Added a story about the desertian of Heinz Roesch to the stories page. Now for the pictures, added one to the prototypes page, four to the Do-24N page and 12 to the Do-24T page, all are reconisable by the yellow cel. Thought that would be a nice idea to give more of a clue to what is new, first the background is yellow and during the next update the cel lining is yellow and after two update the picture is fully integrated in the page. Last but not least added the Luftwaffe Museum at Berlin Gatow and the Dornier Museum at Meersburg to the museum visits page.|
|27/03/2001||As you might have noticed things have changed a bit, the site is more colourful and hopefully easier to navigate. Completed the German units on the units page and lost a picture of the Do-24T as I didn't notice before that it was doubled on the site, also corrected a few minor faults. I just hope that everything works out the way it did when I tested it. Happy surfing! By the way, I still haven't figured out what the error with IE5 is, I know where it is but how to solve it?? Can anybody help?|
