    General News
On 10 April 2021 Alliance Airlines has flown the first revenue service with Embraer ERJ 190. This also marks the beginning of the end of Fokker operations, but the final Alliance Fokker flight may be years ahead.

The successor of Montenegro Airlines will be branded as Air Montenegro. Their current fleet plans only include two Embraer ERJ 195s, so most probably the new airline means the end of the F100 in Montenegrin service.

The Australian Competition Authority has granted permission to Alliance Airlines and Virgin Australia Airlines for cooperation on 39 domestic and two international routes. The basic idea is to increase efficiency and flexibility by using Alliance Fokkers on thinner Virgin routes. The permission is provisionally granted for two years.

The red eagle tail logo that we showed on Maandeeq Air 5Y-SMT (20177) in our January issue (#38), proves to be identical with what I-Fly Air of Kenya has on their website. The relationship between the two airlines is unknown to us.

The Historical Aviation Restoration Society (HARS) in Australia is the proud owner of two Friendships that were donated to them after the New Zealand Post office withdrew the type from service. Both F27s were recently adorned with HARS titles in dark green, as shown here on VH-EWH (10596). The younger sister ship VH-TQN (10680) is currently being restored to flying condition, so we can expect a Friendship back in the air in the coming years.

South Sudanese CityLink Africa Airways has become known as a new Fokker operator. Although the airline advertises as an air cargo company, they are also flying passenger services. The two pictures show 5Y-RNG (20120) in full Renegade Air livery with a large ‘operated by CityLink Africa Airways’ sticker next to the passenger door, so apparently Renegade does not operate this F50 themselves. (Mads Oyen, Juba, 22 April 2021 and CityLink Africa Airways at Facebook; Juba, 7 March 2021)

Another “new” F50 is 5Y-MMA (20145) with Salaam Air Express titles and the name ‘Jamila’ painted on the nose. Former SE-MFU was delivered in December 2020 to Silverstone Air Services. (VP AliEid on Twitter, Dhusamareb, 18 March 2021)

All-white F50 5Y-JXJ (20232) is almost 30 years old now and still in active service. It is believed to fly for Jubba Airways. (Mads Oyen, Juba, 21 April 2021)

Former Sky Aviation F50 PK-ECD (20271) is in use as an emergency trainer at Depati Amir airport on Bangka island, Indonesia, from at least December 2016. Since then, the airframe has lost its engines and undercarriage and now stands on trestles. It carries ‘Menumbing Air’ titles as well as the fake registration PK-MBG.

A picture on Facebook shows this unidentified Maandeeq Air F50. Since the color scheme is different from all known Maandeeq Fokkers it must be either a new fleet addition or an aircraft that was recently repainted. Any help in identifying this airframe is welcome. (Mudugjournalist at Facebook, Dhusamareb, 12 April 2021)

10507 400M   G521/B Ghana Air Force. Some confusion has arisen regarding this Troopship: reportedly it now belongs to the Red Clay Studio of the Savannah Centre for Contemporary Art near Tamale, Ghana. However, on a recent Google Earth picture (February 2021) it is not yet visible in the museums aircraft collection (9.482923, -0.793793), but still on the well-known location at Tamale International airport (9.553939, -0.860725).
10617 500   0002 Myanmar Air Force. This Friendship is stored at Hmawbi Air Base, some 40 km north of Yangon. Indeed Google shows a F27 (17.1161537, 96.057231), so it might be this one.
20145 050 5Y-MMA SE-MFU Silverstone Air Services. The Kenyan registration is now known.
20151 050 5Y-*** SE-LIR Largus Aviation. Ferried from Malmö via Heraklion and Karthoum to Nairobi 22-24 April 2021 for lease by I-Fly Air.
20312 050   VH-FKX Alliance Airlines. A recent picture shows this F50 without engines and windows taped off. So it may be assumed that the airframe is withdrawn from use.

When the Fokker company was still extant, they established their own maintenance school at Woensdrecht air base. Nowadays it is called Aircraft Maintenance & Training School, which belongs to the Curio regional vocational educations institute. The technical school owns two Fokkers as instructional airframes: one is F100 PH-OFF (11274) and on the right F28-4000 (11167) painted as PH-CHN, although its last registration was actually N800DH.

The hull of Air Panama F100 HP-1894PST (11390) is stored in Mexico City for about one year now in a rather stripped down condition. It is located outside the Mexicana MRO Services hangar at Lic. Benito Juárez airport, visible at Google Maps (19.443639, -99.069861). (Ricardo Mungarro, Mexico City, 6 March 2021)

11284 100   XA-MRA The former Mexicana F100 is still on poles in Cuautitlán Izcalli, but the Flyboys restaurant that was located in the airframe is closed due to the corona pandemic.
11369 100   YR-FKB Carpatair. Ferried from Cherbourg to Dinard 19 April 2021 as KRP9001. For maintenance or storage?
11383 100   EP-CFR Iran Air. Thanks to a picture at Jetphotos.net it appears that this 29 year old F100 is still in service.
11505 100 VH-NQZ D-AOLH Network Aviation Pty Ltd (Qantas Airways Ltd.). Registered 14 April 2021. The aircraft was recently ferried from Paderborn-Lippstadt to Singapore-Seletar in full Avanti Air colors. It is believed to be parted out there.
11556 070   PZ-TFA Fly AllWays (Blue Wings). Is advertized for sale. The aircraft has not flown for over one year.
