Today, Wednesday 29 November 2006, the RNLAF will phase out its last 2 remaining Fokker 60s (the extended Fokker 50) based at Eindhoven Air Force Base. A farewell flight shall be due today. What will be their future? Military purpose within another air force (Thailand?) or will they be transformed to pax airliner?

IIRC they will be converted to SAR aircraft and used somewhere in South America, but I can be very well wrong !


Exceptions confirm the rule.

They are going to the Chilean Air Force. The two RNLAF F60s currently stationed in the carribean will be there for another half years or so.


Attamottamotta!

What a waste of money this Fokker 60 project has been... It didn't save Fokker, and the money for the four aircraft would have bought the RNLAF three new C-130s if I remember correctly.
