- In 1979, Karlis Irbitis wrote:
"An aircraft, of comparable size to the [Fokker] D-21, was offered for production at VEF by Prof. John D. Akerman in
1936. Designed for the Spanish Republicans it was never built, because Franco had won."
(Correspondence with F.Gerdessen)
- Thus far I have been unable to identify which of Akerman's known designs was offered to VEF - perhaps it is one which
is not documented at all.
