The last Fokkers: Fokker 50 U-05 RNLAF 07102012
Fokker 50-120 c/n 20253 with tailnumber U-05 and name "Fons Aler" of the Royal Netherlands Air Force at Lelystad airport in The Netherlands (EHLE) on 7 October 2012, after its very last flight in the colors of the Royal Netherlands Air Force (RNLAF) from its homebase Eindhoven airport (EHEH) on 5 September 2012. The aircraft was delivered to the Dutch air force on 1st December 1996 and, as we now know, was the very last Fokker to enter service of the RNLAF. The September flights tot Lelystad meant the end of 94 years of almost continuous service of Fokker aircraft with the Dutch armed forces. It all started with the seizure of a forcedlanded German Fokker D.VII on 15 October 1918.
