You seem to be really sure this subject is a 'hoax'. I would really like to give you compliments with using this internet-complaint.
["Fantasy project"] I would like your story more if you could use less sarcasm. You know, many people are honestly working on this project.
You say Rolls Royce's shareholders should know this. But Rolls Royce's business in the Fokker projects is very small. Rolls Royce should only tell it when compliance says. When there is no need to make rumor, they will keep silence, and that's exactly what shareholders like.
You might see the difference with Stork. Stork is owner of former Fokker activities and its trademark. Stork-Fokker makes for example the A380's glare and many other specialized equipment and project for aviation and space-technology. Stork is also a shareholders company. However their business with the Fokker project is that large they need to say anything to their (Dutch) shareholders. So: see below!
I only translate the main issues:
"Stork says there will be soon a 'go' or 'no go' for continuing production of new Fokker a/c. Rekkof is trying since 1996 to re-open production. Stork, which is owner of all still existing SBU's of Fokker, is happy with the developments, since they take care for the still existing Fokker a/cs. Because of decreasing number of Fokkers operated, business could sincerely use some help, says the PR
-man of Stork. "Since we are owners of the Fokker-designs, we will give contracts for this." So, this is a serious project with many contractors.
The German newspaper 'Handelsblatt' started speculations Thursday-morning. The German newspaper says the needed capital of EUR150.000.000,-- is almost settled and production of F70s and F100s will start soon at Lelystad - Netherlands. The GERMAN NEWSPAPER thinks production will start within 3 months.
Rekkof (CEO J. Rosen Jacobson) says this is quiet optimistic and Rekkof still needs to deal with uncertainties.
See article from largest newspaper in Netherlands:
The Rekkof question (BuyantUkhaa).
I am in function to look into KvK. Rekkof Aircraf N.V. was registrated with its current name on 10/10/1997. It is a serious company with a (start)capital of EUR 9.347.872,45. It owns a subsidiary: Rekkof Restart N.V., which was founded on March 2, 1999.
You see, it is not a fantasy or hoax, just a long-term project which gets serious now. But still uncertain.
