Aviation Photo #1521961 Fairchild Dornier 728-100 - Fairchild-Dornier

The roll-out of this ambitious US / German regional jet. Unfortunately this bird which had already 60 orders from Lufthansa never reached the milestone of the first flight. The frame was later sold to the DLR for research purposes.

I've seen almost all of the photos of this compact wonderful smaller jet with great big cockpit windows and a great design overall! But I would like 2 understand why they never USED IT? What was the reason?? I would personally like 2 have one of these for private use =) hehe! Thanks for any good answer/Regards

Sad piece of aviation. For our friend from sweden:
Fairchild Dornier go into administration due to really bad management. Thats a shame :(

Sadly fate of this beautiful aircraft. The first time I've read about it I was looking forward to see it flying. Nice pic by the way.

This is a beautiful aircraft and would have given the eJets a run for their money. Sadly it may never reach the skies.

No doubt - it's superjet's prototype. They look almost identical.
