I've already seen an Air Canada 767-200 on the forum somewhere. Is it possible to also make an image of the 767-300 in the Air Canada livery?
Just paint that livery onto a blank 767-300.

Fokker T.VIIIw/G in Dutch service

Designed as a seaplane torpedo bomber to replace the T.IVw in both Europe and the Netherlands East Indies, production had commenced just before WWII.

The initial production model was of Fokker standard mixed construction; the rear fuselage was fabric covered, while only the forward section was matalised. The NEI required a fully metalised aircraft, and so a second model (T.VIIIw/M) was designed for the East Indies.
The first 5 of the Dutch order of 24 aircraft were delivered in 1939. On 13th September 1939 a T.VIIIw/G was incorrectly idenetified as French or British and shot down by a German seaplane. In response the Dutch changed to the bright orange triangle national marking.
The second batch of 6 aircraft were delivered on 10 May 1939, the day that Germany invaded.
No additional aircraft were lost in combat, and the remaining T.VIIIw/G aircraft were evacuated to Britain to serve in the RAF.
The unbuilt aircraft on the Fokker production line were completed and served in the Luftwaffe.
No aircraft ever reached the NEI.

Fokker T.VIIIw/G in RAF service

With the fall of the Netherlands the Fokker T.VIIIw/G aircraft were evacuated to Britain, several aircraft being lost en route.

The surviving Fokkers were painted in a minimalist RAF repaint, and including a small Dutch triangle on the nose (hidden behind the engine in this view). Their service was not long, and by the end of 1940 they were retired and replaced by Lockheed Hudsons's.
A single T.VIIIw/M was stolen from the Netherlands and flown to Britain, but that aircraft was not used operationally and was soon scrapped.

Fokker T.VIII in German service

Surprisingly there was only one operator of all models of the Fokker V.VIII: Germany.

With the Dutch capitulation, Germany seized the Fokker factory. Uncompleted T.VIII's were captured, and the factory continued production now for Germany.
A further 8 mixed construction T.VIIIw/G were completed and served with the Luftwaffe.
Construction had started on the metalised T.VIIIw/M for the NEI, and a further 12 models built.
The prototypes for the Finnish order for the enlarged T.VIIIw/C and T.VIIIL landplane were also captured. The remaining 3 T.VIIIw/C aircraft were also completed for the Luftwaffe.
There are not many photographs of the aircraft in service, but at least one aircraft was modified to receive a He111-style nose gun mounting.
The aircraft were used quite extensively in the Mediterranean and Aegean Seas, with the aircraft being finally scrapped in August 1942.

Nice work, for some reason I have always loved the looks of the Fokker T.VIII since I first saw a drawing of one when I was a kid.
