    <p>Manston memories The recent story (S&amp;L, 14-20 December) about the captain who nearly fell out of the wrong jetway prompts Nephew Mike Strong to recount an event from the late 1960s when he was in air traffic control at what was then RAF Manston in the UK. One day the captain of a budget charter airline-operated Douglas DC-6 queried his airways joining clearance for Dover as he taxied out. ATC repeated the clearance, at which point the unfortunate captain announced he was on the wrong aircraft! &quot;It turns out that he had been late reporting for duty and had simply rushed up the steps of the first aircraft he saw with its propellers turning. No jetways in those days,&quot; says Strong. </p> <p>Quelle surprise</p> <p>(Overheard in Budgie newsroom) </p> <p>Rex Stocks: &quot;According to this news service headline the French have launched a new spy satellite.&quot;</p> <p>Monty Orangeball: &quot;Ah yes, but how do they know?&quot;</p> <p>Space blues You may recall a recent phttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Straight-level-192670/

    <p>JUSTIN WASTNAGE / LONDON</p> <p>Dutch holding company Rekkof Aircraft has revived efforts to relaunch production of the Rolls-Royce Tay 650-powered Fokker 70/100 family, five years after abandoning an earlier attempt.</p> <p>Rekkof has held talks with many of the European Fokker 70 operators over the past 18 months and claims to have secured expressions of interest for over 50 aircraft. It is in full contract negotiation with two airlines, says Rekkof commercial director Ruud Kleinendorst. </p> <p>The company is undergoing due diligence with a group of investors to finance a €150 million ($190 million) production restart, which will begin once deposits for 80 aircraft are secured, he adds. </p> <p>Rekkof says Lufthansa and Scandinavian Airlines are among companies expected to place an order. R-R confirms that it is involved in the revival effort.</p> <p>Assembly is likely to be undertaken at Lelystad, near Amsterdam, and suppliers have been identified for all the major componenhttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Rekkof-regroups-for-Fokker-70100-revival-plan-177653/
