Fokker F27 Friendship

@ Aviodrome, Lelystad, Netherlands

August 2015

The Aviodrome aviation museum collection has a definite preference for displaying aircraft of KLM, the flag airline of the Netherlands.  NLM was a Dutch commuter airline that operated from 1966 to 1991 when it was folded into KLM.  The design of the Fokker F27 started in the 1950’s as a replacement to the successful Douglas DC-3 airliner.  First flown in 1955, ti was in production until 1987 and many are still in service today.  The United States Army Golden Knights Parachute Team has used the military version, C-31A Troopship, for its skydiving demonstrations since 1985.  Nikon D7100 w/18-200mm, processed with Aperture.
