Model of the Fokker B.5, a three engine flyingboat for long distance reconaissance en bombing, 1935


Flying boat

The B.5 was a design for a long distance flyingboat to be used for reconaissance, torpedolancing and bombing.

Early in 1935, the Dornier "Wal" flyingboats of the Dutch MLD had to be replaced and

Fokker was asked to present a design which resulted in this three-engine aircraft.

The plane was never built.
