The last Fokkers: Fokker 50 U-06 at EHEH 05092012
Fokker 50-120 c/n 20287 with tailnumber U-06 and name "Robbie Wijting" of the Royal Netherlands Air Force (RNLAF) at Eindhoven airport in The Netherlands (EHEH) on 5 September 2012. That same day, sistership U-05 made its very last flight in Dutch air force colors to Lelystad airport (EHLE), followed by U-06 two days later. Both aircraft will receive the livery of their new, as yet undisclosed, owner by well-known aircraft painter QAPS (Quality Aircraft Painting Services). U-06 was delivered to the Dutch air force on 22 November 1996. Phasing out these last Fokkers means the end to 96 years of almost continuous service of Fokker aircraft with the Dutch armed forces, with the exception of 10 years during and directly after WWII.
