HOLY CRAP!! Didn't see this coming!!

"Development of a proposed Fokker 100 upgrade will be partially undertaken in Brazil following an agreement to establish an aerostructures manufacturing facility in Anapolis.

The plant, 50km (30 miles) north-east of state capital Goiania, will be a prime supplier to NG Aircraft, the company behind the programme. It says construction of the facility will begin this year, and that the project is fully funded.

NG Aircraft is expecting to begin work shortly on modifying a current airframe with new engines and winglets to create a demonstrator model of the twinjet, designated the Fokker 100NG."


Hopefully this vaporware airplane will turn into something real. Although I didn't expect this news I am still very sceptical....

I've been telling this forum the F100 would come back one way or another for the last 5 years or so.   

We talked about the Rekkof - Brazil link already some 7 months ago.

Funny thing is that history might repeat itself as Fokker already had a factory in Brazil in the 50-ties.

Talking about history, this year it is 100 years ago that Anthony Fokker flew his first aircraft(Fokker Spin/Spider) around a church in the city of Haarlem.
So it would be the perfect timing to make it all happen this year.
