Morning clue. And it seems as though you gentlemen are starting to work it out. Thanks; Ernie P.


What warbird do I describe?

1. This aircraft was one of those which just missed service in the war in which it was designed.

2. It was actually in production at war’s end, but hadn’t actually reached field units.

3. It was put into service a few months after the war ended.

4. It stayed in production for some time, and stayed in service for more than 15 years.

5. It was placed into service by several countries.

6. It was produced by a famous builder/design firm.

7. And it was based upon a very famous aircraft.

8. It was basically a reconnaissance version of a fighter aircraft.

9. With two seats, rather than one.

10. The fighter version was produced in relatively large numbers and engaged in combat routinely; but the recon version simply didn’t arrive in time to go into combat during the war.

11. A floatplane version was produced.

12. As well as a (limited seating) passenger version.

13. And an advanced trainer version.

14. Wingspan was a bit over 34 feet.

15. It was used by the United States.

16. And the Soviet Union.

17. And Denmark.

18. And the Netherlands.

19. And Germany.

20. The first “foreign” order came in less than three months after the war ended.

Ah, but what aircraft, Sir? I'm going to award a bonus clue because your response surprised me, Sparky. I had pretty much decided I wasn't going to get a response on the weekend, based on recent history. Thanks; Ernie P.

Sir; you nailed it!! Congratulations and you are now up. You get to ask the next question; and we await your turn in the pitcher's box. Fire away! Thanks; Ernie P.

The Fokker C.1 was essentially a two seat version of the famed Fokker D.VII. Just prior to it's reaching field units, the Armistice was declared and Germany no longer needed, or was allowed, the plane. So, Anthony Fokker quietly, and quickly, moved the planes, bits and pieces, back to his native Holland and started production there. Within three months, he had new customers, new orders and a new manufacturing plant. Now.... How many of you knew there WAS a two seat version of the D.VII?

What warbird do I describe?

Answer: Fokker C1

The Fokker C.I was a Germanreconnaissance biplane under development at the end of World War I. The design was essentially an enlarged Fokker D.VII fighter with two seats and a 138 kW (185 hp) BMW IIIa engine. The C.I was originally developed to sell to the German Army. It never saw service in World War I, but Anthony Fokker managed to smuggle parts out of Germany at the time of the Armistice.

Development

The prototype, V.38, was tested at Schwerin, and put into immediate production. After the armistice, production continued in the Netherlands.

Operators

The C.I went into Dutch service after 16 were ordered in February 1919. The USSR bought 42 C.Is. The C.Is served in the reconnaissance and trainer roles. The last C.I left service in 1936.

2. It was operated by two nations (confirmed) and maybe a third nation (unconfirmed)
3. It's operational life was about 37 years with it's primary user and a further 19 years with it's confirmed secondary user.

Thanks for getting the ball rolling Ernie.
The B-25 is a good guess, given the clues so far but not quite the direction I'm looking.

3. It's operational life was about 37 years with it's primary user and a further 19 years with it's confirmed secondary user.
4. This aircraft saw action in two well known conflicts or wars.
5. The bird in question saw it's first active deployment in Europe.
6. One of the roles that it may have done is emergency resupply of ground troops.
