    General News
Carpatair is soon taking their first Embraer ERJ 195 into service. This aircraft is going to replace one F100, to be withdrawn from use in 2020.

During its general annual meeting on 061119, Virgin Australia Regional Airlines has announced to retire three F100’s by March 2020 as part of the domestic capacity reduction.

Further to the news item in our previous edition, Air Panama has resumed F50 services from David in Panama to San Jose, Costa Rica.

Air Niugini plans to develop their technical department in Port Moresby into a facility for heavy maintenance of Fokkers, Dash-8 and other types and also for other airlines in the region.

On 121119 the Kenyan Civil Aviation Authority has barred seven Silverstone Air Services aircraft from operating, pending further investigations into recent incidents with various of their planes.

Simultaneously, the operating license of Safe Air Company was suspended by the Kenyan CAA. Safe Air Company is known to currently operate at least three F50’s on lease contracts.

On June 1 2002 SkyTeam GmbH, a subsidiary of ECCS Cargo Charter Service, went out of business. At that time the cargo airline had three Friendships in operation and all three were stored at Karlsruhe Baden-Baden airport and put for sale. D-ACCS (10434) was bought by MNG Airlines as source of spare parts for their own F27 freighter fleet. This picture shows that many parts have been removed and the fuselage is still present, 17 years after being withdrawn from use.

Not only the Kenyan registration of Kush Air F50 is now known (5Y-CGX, 20333), but we can also present a picture of this rare aircraft.

10154 300M   5Y-BTD Profile Investments. Derelict since 2007. During the public auction of junk aircraft on 090819 at Nairobi airport, no bids were received for this aircraft. The reserve price was approximately € 4600.
10382 500   I-MLHT Registration cancelled 180919 as exported. Miniliner was the last known operator, this airline ceased in 2015; the aircraft was stored at Bergamo since. If 'exported' is not an error, we look very much forward to learn who is the new owner or operator of this 50 year old Friendship.
10530 500CRF   5X-FFD Fly540 Uganda Ltd. Also this abandoned Friendship was on auction at Nairobi Wilson airport on 090819. The reserve price was slightly less than € 4200, but this limit was not met. It will likely be scrapped for creating more parking space at the airport.
10668 400M (C-31)   85-1608 United States Army. This Troopship was acquired by the Foundation for Flying Dutch Cultural Heritage on the auction. It will soon be transferred from Pope Air Base to Laurinburg-Maxton airport for preparing it for the transatlantic flight to the Netherlands.
20107 050   RP-C9993 Leascor. Noted 201019 at Clarck Field, in basic Skywest colors.
20109 050   OO-VLS Air Antwerp. After the public contest, the name 'Pagadder' has been selected for naming this aircraft; it is a Flemish slang word meaning 'small child whose parents are not born in Antwerp'. The airline deemed this name fitting as its parents (Cityjet, KLM and Amapola Flyg) are all foreigners.
20110 050   5Y-SKN Rudufu Air. While departing from Takaba air strip for a flight to Mandera (both in North-eastern Kenya) on 201019, the F50 experienced a runway excursion and ended up in mud. On board were 30 passengers, there were no casualties. Two days after the incident, the aircraft was still stuck in the mud, awaiting more heavy equipment for pulling it out.
20113 050   RP-C7636 Leascor. Seen 201019 at Clarck Field, still in basic Skywest colors.
20124 50E 5Y- SE-KTC Amapola Flyg. Registration cancelled 160819, restored 060919 for administrative reasons regarding export to Kenya. Cancelled again 200919.

Although Qantas Link flies with VH-NHY (11467) for already more than one year in the new ‘Silveroo’ scheme, we still owe you a picture of it.

For some months TUS Airways had F70 5B-DDB (11561) withdrawn from use at Larnaca (see Fokkernews 19). On 041119 the aircraft was flown to Maastricht; it is still not known whether it will be prepared for a new operator or for continued storage (Hans Hoffman, Maastricht November 8, 2019)
