Well as no one answered my query three years ago, let me have a go. The A16 was a 3 passenger single crew aircraft powered variously by Siemens Sh5,Sh11,Sh14, Jukers Ld1 and Mercedes DI and DII engines. There was in excess of 20 models produced some accounts say 21, others say 22.

The A17 was a larger aeroplane with 2 crew and room for 8 passengers of which 12 were produced. Engines used were Gnome Rhone Jupiter IV on the base line A17 model, Gnome Rhone Jupiter 9AK or Siemens Jupiter VI on the A17a, Siemens Sh20 U on the A17b and Junkers Jumo 5B diesel on the A17c.

The A29 Mowe,of which 5 were produced, was again an eight passenger plane not dissimilar to the A17. First flown in 1929 it was powered by BMW IV engine.

The A38 was an even larger plane with a crew of 3 and seating for 13 passengers. There were four in number produced in 1931 all going to DLH and subsequently on to DVS in 1934. Power was supplied by either Gnome Rhone Jupiter or Siemens Jupiter IV U except the one 'b' model which was powered by Siemens Sh20 U.

The tailskid undercarriage featured large wheels mounted on each side of the fuselage.

I am curious as to why four different aircraft types are listed at the top of the page. Go on give us a clue.

With the success of their earlier designs Focke and Wulf formed the Focke-Wulf company in 1924 and their first design was an all-wood three /four passenger airliner or light transport the A.16. First flown by Georg Wulf on 23 June 1924 at least 20 aircraft were built.

The A.16 was a high-wing monoplane of conventional configuration. The wing used a thick airfoil. The pilots sat in an open cockpit above the wing while the passengers were carried in the enclosed fuselage below. The tailskid undercarriage featured large wheels mounted on each side of the fuselage.
