    General News
KLM and CityJet are in the process of setting up a new airline Air Antwerp, that is planned to operate at least one F50 from Antwerp to three destinations, amongst which London City. The new airline should be operational in autumn 2019.

Air Niugini has resumed their F100 flights to Tokua airport at Rabaul now the runway works have been completed.

Alliance Airlines will open a base in Rockhampton, on the Queensland Coast, for expanding operations. The airline also plans to base two additional F70 and one F100 at Darwin airport in response to growing demand.

An hitherto unconfirmed report mentioned that the Royal Australian Air Force had acquired 2 F70 aircraft from Alliance Airlines; no further details are known.

Amapola Flyg has expressed their intention to continue flying the F50 for 10 more years. There are no plans to further expand the fleet; they rather hope to sell five aircraft in Africa. Currently there are some 20 F50's in Amapola service, both for freight (mail) and passenger transport.

After almost 16 years Helvetic Airways has concluded F100 operations. The airline now has an all-Embraer fleet.

For the 2019 summer season TUS Airways has added 3 routes from Tel Aviv to Rhodes, Samos and Skiathos, each twice a week on F100.

Friendship PH-FCX (10183) recently got a new coat of paint and looks brilliant again. It started its career in 1961 as TC-TEK with THY Turkish Airlines. In 1974
Fokker bought it back and converted it into a maritime patrol demonstrator. After its last flight in June 1983 it was donated to the Dutch Fokker Friendship
Association and was on display for some years at the Aviodome museum at Schiphol airport. Then it became part of a private collection until 2016 when it was
trucked to Hoogerheide (close to Woensdrecht air base), where it opened as a luxury Bed & Breakfast in 2017. For more pictures and reservations see
(the owners, Hoogerheide, May 18, 2019)

Although F50 freighter SE-MFD (20126) is flying some months now in Amapola Flyg livery, we have not shown it before in our site.

Blue Bird Aviation of Sudan operates one F50 since 2013, but we have never published a picture of it. It is a former Mid Airlines airframe that kept its registration
ST-ARH (20131) (bluebirdsudan website,Karthoum, unknown date). It is unknown whether there exists a relationship between Blue Bird Aviation in Kenya and Sudan, both are F50 operators.

ST-DNP is the second F50 that became known to operate with Sudanese El Dinder Aviation; its c/n is still unknown. The aircraft made the inaugural flight to
Damazin; not the best picture but is shows that the aircraft is all white with the company logo on the forward fuselage.

The last Fellowship actively serving with the Argentine Air Force (TC-53, 11020) recently received a special red tail, sporting the coat of arms of II Escuadrón of the
1st Brigada (insert). The aircraft is planned to perform its farewell flight on August 29th. (Fernando Ariel Torre, El Palomar air base, May 1, 2019)

The Best Western Plus Navigator Inn & Suites hotel in Everett, WA, USA offers a quite unique entry to their guests: the wing and part of the cabin of a former Horizon
Fellowship. Most likely these parts are from N498US (11181), but the identity needs confirmation.

The second F70 for Jetair Caribbean arrived at Eindhoven airport after a long trip with many stops for having the cabin refitted, before it will continue to its future
