    General News
Kenya has banned all commercial flights between Kenya and Somalia until August 2021. Only humanitarian flights are allowed. Reason seems to be the long standing dispute between the two countries regarding import of Kenyan khat, a psychoactive plant, which is prohibited in Somalia without proper permission. A number of Kenyan and Somalian F50 operators that fly khat to Somalia are affected by this measure.

In Tanzania, W-Cargo Airlines (the trade name of Warnercom Tanzania Ltd.) has obtained its license as the country's first all-cargo airline. Apart from a Boeing 737, there are plans adding a F27 or F50 to the fleet for domestic operations, launching later in 2021.

The single F50 of Air Antwerp was ferried from Antwerp to Malmö for maintenance and storage until relaunch of the flights, probably in August 2021. The picture shows OO-VLS (20109) departing Antwerp airport. (Walter van Brempt, Antwerp, 7 May 2021)

Kenyan startup Premier Airlines operates this 5Y-JXK (20233), on lease from Skyward International. The livery is simple, but definitely better than the many all-white F50s flying in East Africa. (Mads Oyen, Juba 28 April 2021)

It looks as if the end of the F50 era in Australia has come. Alliance Airlines is in the process of withdrawing their F50 fleet from use. Currently three F50s, among which VH-FKV (20303), have been prepared for storage. (Tony Haynes on Flickr, Adelaide, 1 May 2021)

20184 050   9S-ABK Gomair. The registration has become known. Some other sources report it as 9S-ADJ, but for the time being we adhere to 9S-ABK.
20249 050 5Y-FAS 5Y-CHM Freedom Airline Express. This F50 was recently reregistered and it has kept the original color scheme.

20312 050   VH-FKX Alliance Airlines. As we supposed in the previous edition, this F50 is indeed retired. It made its last flight from Olympic Dam to Adelaide on 12 March 2020 as QQ3217. The airline still has two F50s operational.

Since Bek Air had its certification withdrawn by the local authorities in April 2020, the fleet is awaiting things to come. UP-F1018 (11317) is seen here collecting dirt together with a number of sister ships. (Ercan Karakaş on Flickr, Almaty, 29 April 2021)

11144 4000   EP-ASF Iran Aseman Airlines. In Fokkernews #25 we published a picture of an unknown Fellowship hull that was sunk as a diving object off the Kish Island coast close to the Toranj hotel. Thanks to a message on Instagram it has been identified as EP-ASF.
11369 100   YR-FKB Carpatair. Following up on our prior edition, the aircraft appeared to be in Dinard for maintenance. It was seen active in France, Romania and Italy since.

11501 100   VH-VKQ Alliance Airlines. Registration cancelled 20 April 2021 as scrapped, one month after the F100 flew from its desert storage to Brisbane. It was still in full Helvetic Airways livery.

11571 070   VH-QQX Alliance Airlines, flying on behalf of Airnorth. On 28 March 2021 the crew of flight TL131 from Melbourne to Toowoomba Wellcamp airport stopped the descent to its destination at 6000 feet, stayed in a holding pattern some 8 minutes and ran a checklist. Then the aircraft climbed back to 10,000 feet. About 9 minutes later the crew indicated that the flaps were not working. The aircraft diverted to Brisbane and made a high-speed, but safe landing, approximately 1 hour after  the aborted descent into Toowoomba.
11579 070   PZ-TFC Fly AllWays. Three years after its delivery, this F70 made the first revenue flight from Paramaribo to Aruba and back on 4 May 2021 as EDR705/706.
