The founders of Dutch aviation, the idealistic Albert Plesman and opportunistic Anthony Fokker, are inextricably linked to each other. As the world recovers from one war and prepares for the next these two opposite personalities struggle to make the Netherlands a significant player in civil aviation and establish global brands that are still around today.
