Dears Sirs,

Writing a book about Fokker fighters from 1919-1929 I discovered this forum. Nice forum, nice propeller. It's bought by the Fokker company and registrated in the Fokker financial papers. On the list of December 31th, 1926and 1927 this prop is mentioned, in 1930 it's gone. It looks like that this prop never is used but is sold for a very low price (in 1927 it's wordth is mentioned nothing) or is dumped. But, a nice prop, bought by Fokker in mid 1923.

Kind regards,
Jan Grisnich

Hi Dave,

Thanks for this little invitation!
I'd like historic aviation from the time I was a child, and from that time onwards I collect many information about planes. After a time I discover a gap in the written Dutch aviation history from 1919-1929. In that period we had the plane manufacturer Fokker, who was leading expert in the development of fast fighters at that period. Complex technical details, various problems, due to poor interest of the Dutch government, but, the main reason to write a book about that period, never be written down. That leds to the coming publication about Fokker fighters D.IX until D.XIV. One part of that story is the story of propellers, which I was recovering for a week ago and discovered this propeller. I had earlier known about this prop, and I remember this number (I don't know why).So thats a short introduction, feel free to ask for details!

Maybe I can make a list of known Heine and Astra propellers for 450hp Napier Lion II and IIa and 300pk Hispano HS-42 8Fb?

Kind regards,
Jan Grisnich
