Help with ID of these Fokkers

Post by Cavemonster »

Hi, going through my old photos from the 1990s and I found some shots of these. I've had a google around but can't remember where I took the photo, or the operator. They look like Fokker 50s to me, but I'm happy to be corrected.

Any clues appreciated!

Thanks in advance

I think that photo was taken at Woensdrecht Airbase, close to this position: https://goo.gl/maps/FeK6wKGtAD22
I have no idea about the operators though.

Thanks Luamax, I've only been to Woensdrecht once, so that makes it June-1994. The tail logos don't match anything that I can find, odd!

Fokker 50's, with 'the Fokker triangle'. At some point Fokker decided that all white Fokker 50's were to be painted with a triangle on their tail.
IIRC these were all aircraft registered outside of the export register (PH-KX., PH-LX. ranges).

By doing a quick scan through my movements database I got:
PH-JXC		F.50	20226	-	Triangle on tail	O	EHAMA	1992-05-06	56	M	
			PH-JXC		F.50	?	-	Fokker-triangle	O	EHAMA	1993-04-06	61	U	
			PH-KXG		F.50	20247	-	Triangle on tail	O	EHAMA	1992-03-31	51	F	
			PH-KXH		F.50	20249	-	Triangle on tail	O	EHAMA	1992-04-07	51	F	
			PH-KXS		F.50	20255	-	Fokker-triangle	O	EHAMA	1992-05-26	51	F	
			PH-KXW		F.50	20261	-	Fokker-triangle	O	EHAMA	1992-08-21	51	F	
			PH-LXF		F.50	20265	-	Fokker-triangle	O	EHAMA	1992-09-28	51	F	
			PH-LXP		F.50	20276	-	Fokker-triangle	O	EHAMA	1993-02-17	51	F	
			PH-LXU		F.50	20280	-	Fokker-triangle	O	EHAMA	1993-04-07	51	F	
			PH-LXU		F.50	20280	-	Fokker-triangle	O	EHAMA	1993-04-18	61	U	
			PH-LXU		F.50	20280	-	Fokker-triangle	O	EHAMA	1993-04-30	61	U	
			PH-LXU		F.50	20280	-	Fokker-triangle	O	EHAMA	1993-06-02	61	U	
			PH-LXW		F.50	20266	-	Fokker-triangle	O	EHAMA	1992-10-27	51	F	
			PH-MXE		F.50	20282	-	Fokker-triangle	O	EHAMA	1993-04-21	51	F	
			PH-MXF		F.50	20283	-	Fokker-triangle	O	EHAMA	1993-05-25	51	F	
			PH-MXF		F.50	20283	-	Fokker-triangle	O	EHAMA	1993-07-01	61	U	
			PH-MXG		F.50	?	-	Fokker-triangle	O	EHAMA	1993-07-01	31		
			PH-MXH		F.50	?	-	Fokker-triangle	O	EHAMA	1993-07-13	31		
			PH-MXH		F.50			Fokker-triangle	O	EHAMA	1993-11-09	37		
			PH-MXI		F.50	?	-	Fokker-triangle	O	EHAMA	1993-07-07	31
Please note these are only the ones that I've actually seen and bothered to remark 'triangle' on, so this list WILL not be complete. But it does provide some feeling how many and when these triangles were applied.

Grtz,

The photo must been taken around 1992/93 and it is for sure Woensdrecht. The Fokker 50's with the orange/blue triangle were build but had not customer assigned. To avoid "bad advertisement" they were stickered like this rather than being left all white. Most should be in the PH-KX* range. At some point 40-50 Fokker 50s/100s were stored at Woensdrecht those days!

Apparently it was 14-June-1994.

Thanks for the help, I hadn't thought to check the Fokker house logo.
