    I thank you for these Fokker pictures. I belive it is one of the nicest aircraft designs flying...., having grown up with the Fokker F-28 fellowship with the Norwegian flag-carrier airline Braathens S•A•F•E.
    Fokker F-70 is a shorter version of the F-100, which was a new development of the old F-28.

      Warning: OT follows

      So many years ago my first visits to the Netherlands were by sea, and that was in the days when the ship was a small passenger-only one, rolling and tossing in the heavy seas that the North Sea can provide you with on occasion. I recall standing up on deck on one night journey where the horizon was see-sawing and the wind was howling. I'm fortunate in that I'm a good sailor, but I was the only one on deck! The massive car ferries now in service to and from The Hook bear no resemblance.
      But the first time I flew must have been in the little old Fokker Friendship F27, a tiny plane with only a few dozen passengers. I went from Norwich airport - about 40 minutes drive from home and which consisted of a small building where you showed your previously bought ticket and your passport to the chappie at the door, saw the Fokker waiting outside on the tarmac and strolled out to board. In more recent times there was the pretty little six-bladed-propellor Fokker 50, a size larger to match the slightly larger airport, now distinguished by its security measures and huge glass windows beyond which, heaven forbid, you dared not progress until formally given permission over the tannoy and inspection by the official at the newly opened gate. Now it is the Fokker 70, slightly larger still and, before you may even progress towards the gate, there is an obligatory £10 charge in Norwich to go towards the funding of goodness knows what further "improvements" to the airport. If they don't hurry up with whatever these improvements are the cash will be worthless. Or perhaps it is just to provide more exciting buns at the tea counter.

      A couple more photos especially for Svein, both taken at Norwich in 2012:

        Ah, thank you so much! Your story and pictures works well with the first cups of morning coffee.
        As the aircraft nerd I am, I "have to" pick..., as it's actually the spoilers which go up on the wing, and I must say...., wow, what a neet and orderly sight, as it usually looks like a "crows nest" when spoilers open and you can see all the way into the systems of wireing, tubing and wing structure
        Than you managed to get a Boeing 777 of Qatar Cargo. Nice!

            hardly any fences between me and the landingstrip, but 5 hours of starting planes,not the big ones,they went to the most west strip, see first image.
            discarge place was the point of the arrow



            what is here stil earth, was been filled with tarmac that day to make 5 extra parkingplaces

                              Oh my, Thijs, what a great collection of aircraft, so well photographed, and your great annotated maps too.

                              Thanks. Got many images from there.
                              But can't reconise what brand or type a plane is when it's not readable.
                              Also picture push is annoying me the last times.
                              Images get uploaded, but can't copy and past them.

                            Indeed a Boeing 787, or also known as a Dreamliner.... it was my favourite looking aircraft, but then Airbus 350 came and i was in love again.

                            Never flown on a Dreamliner (yet)...

                            Nice collection of aircrafts... especially realising you have no interest in aircrafts. LOL

                            But, they are fascinating... right?

                              Type nr wasn't focused, but i thought that was what there stands.
                              The only one i reconise is the boeing 747-400, becaise that had the verticale end wing tips. But so many planes have those now
                              A few weeks back an article in the newspaper about that the end of fabrication of the 747 is started.

                            euhhhh, i can't find anything in it.
                            they all look the same to me,the only thing that makes them different to another is the livery,
                            and there callsign.
                            so i got many bleu plane images now.

                            but what i thought it was a boeing,on another image i saw it was an airbus.
                            it got the same ****pit windows,so i think that the boeing is an airbus.

                            the only thing what is fascinating is how it stays in the air.
                            yes i know it's the way the wind flows over the Wings, but still the weight ,specially of that antonov an 225
