There she is... And what a beauty she became, after getting her new livery at the Qaps paintshop, which is based on the first two NLM F27's operated in the 1960's. This aircraft, originally delivered to Aer Lingus in 1958, is the first production F27 and now the oldest one still flying.

I get a lump in my throat whenever I see pics of the 'old' Fokker Friendship. In the late 1960's I had the privilege of working as a traffic officer at Lae airport, in Papua New Guinea. In those days, this small airport was serviced by Ansett Airlines of Papua New Guinea ... and Trans Australia Airlines, who also used DC3's and Twin Otters (Twotters as they were affectionately known).

I also had the privige of hopping over to my hometown of Rabaul, flying on a Fokker ... registrations VH FNK, FNM, or FNN, on my occasional weekend off.

Over 30 years may have elapsed since then, but the memories are wonderfully vivid.

A real classic one. Nice old livery too with the propellers painted in the same colors. A masterpiece! T.B.

One of the finest looking aircraft ever built .. and this retro livery and the striped props show off the F-27s powerful looks to perfection.
