    General News

As mentioned below, Alliance Airlines is in the process of phasing out the F50 fleet. Currently two are still active, three others are already withdrawn from use. Supposedly the F70/F100 will take over the F50 duties.

On 11 June 2021 Air Antwerp ceased operations due to the corona pandemic. Their single F50 had already been returned to the lessor in Sweden.

In June TUS Airways has been relaunched in Cyprus after a pause of some two years. The new business model, supported by Israeli investors, is built on the Airbus 320 to begin with, to be later supplemented with wide-body aircraft. In the new fleet plans there is no space for the Fokker F70 and F100 that were used in the past.

In May 2007 a heavy storm damaged MNG Kargo Friendship TC-MBE (10639) while parked at Coventry airport, from where it flew nightly parcel flights to Bristol. In 2008 it was broken up and the hull and wings were trucked to the premises of the Outdoor Adventure Company in Old Hutton near Kendal, Cumbria, UK. The airframe was not rebuilt, but the parts taken into use as a paintball facility. It is still there, just visible on Google Earth in the shadow at coordinates 54.2752, -2.6847.
