The Fokker 100s life isn't over yet ! Most of the former US Airways ones have been picked up by Stork, the dutch company who took over some assets of Fokker, for 1 million dollar a piece, refurbished and leased or sold again. Germany wants 29 and left and right some small carriers will take 1 or 2. The only reason some US Fokker 100s are still in the USA is because the overhaul premises at Woensdrecht and Amsterdam are packed and filled to capacity, on this moment, after some slow years, they can't cope with the demand for heavy overhauls. Because the acquisition costs are so cheap, I am sure they will eventually find new homes.
nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?
