Alliance Airlines (QQ) F100 Purchase

Various sources are reporting that Alliance Airlines (QQ), based in Brisbane, Australia has signed a letter of intent to purchase 8 F100s form an unnamed European vendor, which will see their F100 fleet (many ex-US?) expand to 19. Alliance runs charters, mostly for mining but also the government sector.

From what I can see, this will make Alliance the largest F100 operator, and the second largest Fokker operator after KLM (Alliance also operates 6 F50s).

Might be just a coincidence but KLM just announced their last F50 flight

I saw 4, I think, ex-Alpi Eagles parked up at Venice Marco-Polo last week, could this make up part of this purchase?

They used to operate 8 F100's before their shut down.

Quoting Kent350787 (Thread starter):

Correct I have read in in TravelDaily (though they reported 9).

As mentioned for fly in-fly out mine charter work. It also reported that they are looking at expanding their fly in-fly out work to include SE Asia.

Any ideas of city pairs that might be included ?

That wold indeed be cool, It would make some financial sence, newer aircraft, launch customer (get a discount), better economics (quieter, greener). But the classic F100 are cheap as chips. Also I'm sure banks would have the memory that Alliance was formed out of the shadows of Flight West Airlines, be a little nervous about lending them the extra funds.

How about the ex-Germania aircraft? 8 have not been placed so far with a new operator and are currently stored at WOE. They are all ex US. Perfect match.

The Alpi Eagles ones have the Tay 620 engines, which makes them a somewhat unlikely choice.

It's not the Alpi Eagles birds, which are not that popular due to the reason you stated. I do know who the planes are coming from, but unfortunately I'm not at liberty to say.

why not some ex KL F100's as they are also being phased out.
Only 6 remain in the fleet so there must be some left for an eager buyer

Wrong engine.

Afaik only 5 with the Tay650 will remain in the fleet or has there been a change of plan ?



The truth lives in one’s mind, it doesn’t really exist
