    General News

Iranian airline Mahan Air is believed to soon add turboprops to their fleet for domestic operations. Apparently the F50 has been chosen, and we can only speculate where these should come from.
     Fokker F27, Fokker 50 & Fokker 60

The world’s oldest Friendship that is still in service is 59-0259, the VIP F27 of the Philippine Air Force (10115), which was delivered in September 1959 and celebrated its 62nd birthday this year. In 2019 it was overhauled, got a new coat of paint and looks brilliant.

The start-up airline I-Fly Air is using this F50, that is believed to be operated by Silverstone Air Services, with the suitable registration 5Y-IFL (20151). It is the former SE-LIR and is painted all white. (Ralph’s Aviation Photography; Nairobi-Wilson, 12 November 2021)

The operator of F50 Freighter 5Y-JWB (20197) has changed from Jetways, who flew it still in the ex-Miniliner livery, to Renegade Air. It is now white and the large cargo door is green with ‘Fokker 50 Cargo’ titles. When it changed, is unknown, but the oldest picture in the new livery dates March 2021.
