Tanzanian Gvmt F-50 EHWO

Post by mwpeters »

According to: http://www.woensdrechtas.nl/FokkerServices.html
there should be a Tanzanian Gvmt Fokker F50 at Fokker Services at Woensdrecht. Perhaps anyone can help me with the following:
* Is this bird still there?
* Is it outside or inside?
* Is it possible to shoot a picture?
* When is its departure date planned?

Best regards,
Maarten

And its a heavy maintenance job; it has been seriously taken apart in hangar 1 and will take another few months to be put together again! Some advantage in waiting some more: longer light on departure day... 8)

Is this Fokker (still) outside today?
Thanks in advance,

René

I can answer my own question :-). Yes I was still outside this morning, in front off "the wall".

Staat er inderdaad nog steeds, al sinds September 2016. Mijn laatste waarneming was gister avond en toen stond hij nog aan de muur, waar ik gok dat hij nog steeds staat. Hij staat namelijk niet voor hal 1 en daar binnen lijkt me stug, deze staat gevuld met o.a een Colombiaanse F28;)

If it is in front of hangar 1, then yes.

It's still outside now. If you walk from the big parkingplace of Aviolanda to the dirt track it's on your right side behind the hangars.
