On 050720 Buff Air Services F50 5Y-WFC (20250), arriving from Mogadishu on a humanitarian cargo flight, suffered an incident at Bardere airstrip in Gedo province, southwest Somalia. When backtracking after landing, the starboard tires burst and the undercarriage collapsed, probably as a result of metal fatigue. There were only slight injuries among the 5 crew. Damages to the plane included the right hand wingtip and propeller as well as the nose wheel and belly. It may very well be a write-off. (Robert Alai at Twitter; Bardere, July 5 2020)

In 2006 CATA Lineas Aereas went out of business and the Fairchild fleet was abandoned at Moron airport, Argentina. In 2019 the remains of at least two aircraft were acquired by Ariel Eichenberger, a Swiss-Argentine artist who designs furniture and utensils from aircraft parts, known as "Voneich aircraft art". Two aircraft identified are LV-AZV, an F27J (065; left) and LV-MGW, an FH-227B (568, right) that never was painted in the CATA house colors, but retained the livery of a previous operator.

One of the five ex-Helvetic F100's that were acquired by Alliance Airlines, was broken up after all useable parts had been removed. Two large pieces of VH-VKO (11466) were trucked out of Perth airport (Michael Cant; Perth, June 23, 2020)

In 2017 plans were launched for the new Dutch airline Air Hollandia, but these never materialized. One F100, PH-ABW (11493), was already adorned with their titles, but it never flew as such. It was deregistered 140718 and the company declared bankrupt few months later. The aircraft has been lingering since at Maastricht-Aachen airport and was recently seen with the registration removed (William Musculus; Maastricht, June 19, 2020)

11321 100   4O-AOM Montenegro Airlines. The visit to Bratislava 140620 that we reported in the previous edition, must have been for maintenance, as the aircraft has been noted again on the Podgorica-Dusseldorf service from 110720 on.

11328 100   PK-RJI Ekspres Air/Premiair. Registration cancelled 280919. The airframe was reported in 2012 to be sold to Sky Aviation as PK-ECI, but this was apparently not taken up.
