Ok, this is totally childish!
I probably have once liked some random KLM page on Facebook (not the childish part yet!) and now I occasionally get news from the Dutch airline… Today I got a new post from them named “Our mission: To capture the Fokker 70 in flight!”.
I started giggling. (yes the childish part starts here)
I did a little research and came upon this article: A fond farewell to Fokker
I figured Fokker was the name of a plane. But still, it made me giggle like a 5 year old. Did you notice? I’ve said Fokker 4 times already…. 5 now!
And you know what? Because of a simple homonym, I learned quite a lot about the Dutch airline company, and about the Dutch aviation pionneer, yes, Mr Anthony Fokker.
Now I wonder how many Fokkers are left to this day. *Giggles* I won’t google that. I don’t want to know… Let me daydream about the Fokkers Reunions and all that Fokker stuff…
Hey, no disrespect, Sir Anthony… I’m just being my childish self. But still… I just gotta say;
Thanks a lot for the good giggles, Fokker!
