The friendly nose of 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 colours to Lelystad airport (EHLE), followed by U-06 two days later. The aircraft are parked at EHLE awaiting a new owner. Phasing out these last Fokkers meant the end to 96 years of almost continuous service of Fokker aircraft with the Dutch armed forces.
