PH-OSI, the second prototype Fokker 50 welcomes visitors to the Aviodrome at Lelystad Airport. The aircraft, built in 1986, was later converted to serve as the Fokker 50 Maritime Patrol Aircraft demonstrator.
The Fokker 50 demonstrators, PH-OSO and PH-OSI were both constructed using Fokker 27 fuselages, with the oval windows of PH-OSI being painted over and small dark squares being applied to resemble the smaller but more numerous cabin windows of the Fokker 50s that entered service.
