Norwegian civil aircraft are and were obliged to mobilize in a war situation. Det Norske Luftfartsselskap (DNL) three Junkers Ju 52 and one Junkers W34 Ternen naturally belonged to the Navy’s Air Force. Before the outbreak of war, the planes had been used in scheduled traffic along the coast up to Tromsø. The newest of them, the Hauken, from 1937 was already delivered prepared as a bomber from the factory with reinforcements, machine gun mounts and a submersible machine gun nacelle. This aircraft was leased by the Navy’s Air Force and painted in the Navy’s colors with 400 on the screed. It was put into service on 12 January 1940 and flew coastal patrol with its main base at Karljohansvern in Horten. The other aircraft were to be incorporated into the Marine Air Force as they came in for periodic maintenance from the autumn of 1940. The F.400 was for inspection at Gressholmen near Oslo during the invasion and was taken by the Germans there, like the other DNL aircraft. in the summer of 1940 they were incorporated into Lufthansa’s fleet and flew in traffic between Oslo and Tromsø. The Hawk crashed in Hommelvik in March 1943, the others continued in German service and were taken over by the Norwegian authorities in 1945
