Fokker F-50

Fokker 50 prototype PH-OSI

The Fokker F-50 was seen as a more modern version of the F-27 from the Dutch Aircraft builder Fokker. That was not the case, the F-50 was a completely re-designed aircraft of very high standards in it’s days.

Sadly the Fokker Company went broke after a takeover by MBB Germany and that was the end of building these populair aircraft.
