    General News
On 220620 Alliance Airlines will add a new route to their network: from Brisbane to Proserpine (Whitsunday Coast airport) to be served four times a week. The aircraft type has not been announced yet, but for sure it will be a Fokker.

Not all airlines are suffering from the coronavirus crisis. Alliance Airlines reported a substantial increase in demand for sports and mining-related charters and expects a profit of over AU$ 40 million (some 25 million euro).

Alliance Airlines has successfully acquired fresh capital for fleet expansion. The airline prefers Fokkers, but if these are not available, might choose other 80-100 seat types for performing additional charters.

In contrast to many other airlines, Air Niugini sees opportunities in the COVID pandemic. The airline expects to be able to negotiate the lowest possible prices for replacement aircraft for their current Fokker fleet (six F70s and seven F100s).

Amapola Flyg has agreed with BRA (Braathens Regional Airlines) to take over the flights between Stockholm-Bromma and Malmö, Gothenburg, Visby, Angelholm and Halmstad for the 2020 summer season.

The ’El Holande Errante’ (The Flying Dutchman) Bed & Breakfast near Chingaza National Park, east of Bogotá, Colombia has transformed a Friendship into a holiday apartment. This F27 is not positively identified yet, but Fokker experts believe that former Air Panama HP-1543PST (10268) is the most likely candidate. The United Nations logo is in remembrance of UN duties in Georgia in the 1990s, when it still was HB-AAZ. (El Holande Errante website; Bogotá, date unknown)

10594 600   XY-AEO Myanma Airways. This Friendship crashed in July 1999 and the remains are reportedly in use as an instructional airframe at Yangon international airport in Mingaladon, Myanmar (Google Maps 16.913572, 96.135050).

After retirement from Merpati F28 PK-MGJ (11175) serves as a nature movie theater (Theather Alam) in the Baturraden educational park near Banyumas, Central Java, Indonesia. The aircraft is visible on Google Maps -7.313651, 109.228946. (Crisco1492 at Wikimedia; Baturraden Park, March 23, 2015)

Another former Merpati F28 PK-GKQ (11201) is preserved in the same area, namely in the Owabang Park Bojongsari in Purbalingga, Central Java, Indonesia (Google Maps -7.349019, 109.350247). The livery of its last operator can no longer be recognized, but the registration is still visible underwing. (Minnan Nurrokhman at Google Maps; Purbalingga, July 2019)

The Police Academy at Semarang, Indonesia, has former Merpati F28 PK-GKR (11202) on their premises for use as a hijacking training object (Google Maps -7.018717, 110.409890). Initially it retained the Merpati livery, then got full Lion Air colors and is currently adorned with ‘Platina” titles, the name of the Akpol anti-terror unit. It is definitely the world’s most peculiar Fellowship as the engines are mounted under the wings. (APY_COOL.45 at Twitter; Semarang, December 11, 2019)

Another ex Merpati F28 that still survives is PK-GKV (11211). It is one of the attractions in the Kyai Langgeng recreation park in Magelang, Central Java, Indonesia (Google Maps -7.484920, 110.209581). Not so long ago it got a new livery in orange and white with large ‘KLM OER’ titles, as the aerial overview shows; we have no information what this means. (Kyai Langgeng park website; Magelang, date unknown)

After the demise of OLT Express, this F100 was acquired by Avanti Air as a spare parts donor. Officially it is D-AOLH (11265), now replaced by the fake registration
D-PIRRI, probably because the local fire brigade uses it as a training object. (William Musculus; Saarbrücken, December 30, 2019)

The association of aviation friends Airliners.sk has started a crowd funding action for preserving former Austrian Airlines F100 OE-LVJ (11359, now registered
OE-IMX), rescuing it from being scrapped. In cooperation with Austrian Airlines Technik – Bratislava, s.r.o. the aircraft will be prepared for exhibition at the Aviation Museum in Slávnica, Slovakia. Please see
https://www.airliners.sk/en/airliners-sk-is-going-to-save-the-fokker-100-from-scrapping for the full story and https://www.airliners.sk/en/f100/ if you want to make a donation. The aircraft is parked at Bratislava since November 2017. (airliners.sk; Bratislava, May 27, 2020)

One of the former Pelita F100s, PK-PFZ (11486), was recently added to the collection of the Aviation educational park, Obyek Wisata in Cilimus, Kuningan, West Java. It now carries ‘J&J Paksi Airlines’ titles and a fake registration PK-J&J, after the company that runs the park. On the nose is a sticker saying ‘aviation academy Kuningan SMK Taufiq Mubarok’, presumably as a sign that the students of this institute helped preserving the airframe.

11321 100   4O-AOM Montengro Airlines. Ferried from Podgorica to Bratislava 140620 as MGX898. The reason is unknown, we would not be surprised if this F100 eventually would join the Alliance Airlines fleet.
11340 100   YR-FKA Carpatair. Ferried 180220 to Saarbrücken as KRP5101, presumably for storage.
11430 100   EP-ASU Iran Aseman Airlines. Reportedly withdrawn from use 0718.
11476 100   EP-ATF Iran Aseman Airlines. On 300520 flight EP626 from Tehran Mehrabad to Kermanshah returned to Tehran with one engine switched off, due to high oil temperature; the aircraft had 99 persons on board and made a safe landing at Mehrabad 25 minutes after departure. The next day, 310520 flight EP833 from Ahwaz to Tehran-Mehrabad had to return shortly after take-off with the same engine switched off, due to high oil temperature indication; the aircraft with 101 persons on board landed safely at Ahwaz 25 minutes after departure. According to the authorities, the causes for the two engine failures were unrelated .
11478 100   VH-VKP Alliance Airlines. Registration cancelled 030620, no longer in use as an aircraft. This ex-Helvetic F100 was stored at Brisbane and was recently reduced to spare parts.
11561 070   5B-DDB TUS Airways. Impounded at Maastricht airport 030620 after a court ruling in favor of a pilot to whom TUS owes a significant amount of salary. 
11573 070   VH-NKZ Alliance Airlines. Registration cancelled 280520. This aircraft was only used for spares after Alliance acquired it from Austrian Airlines in 2014 and was stored in Adelaide, gradually losing parts.
