Fokker updated the venerable F-27 with modern engines and electronics and a redesigned cabin in 1983 as the Fokker 50, but production ended in 1996 when Fokker folded. Belgian regional Vlaamse Luchttransportmaatschappij (VLM) still operates 19. This one (named City of Reenstar) is seen at the point of rotation from Runway 05L from the Ringway aviation viewing park.

Excellent,to have captured it at the exact moment of rotation, and yet making the picture look sharp. 5 stars, and I'm from the UK, although it says Germany. (I'm using my German friends Computer.)
