However, after Fokker test pilot T.H. Leegstra, together with Fokker board member Ir. Piet Vos, escaped to England in a Fokker G.1 on May 5, 1941, most private aircraft were seized. PH-LFK was handed over to Oberfeldwebel (Master Sergeant) Kühn of the Wehrmacht (German Army) only nine days later. On October 28, 1941 the aircraft was transferred to Rangsdorf in Germany, its fate is unknown.
