En de kist is gearriveerd! :-)

Hij staat nu in de Zeusch hangaar op Lelystad airport, vrijwel helemaal achteraan op het veld.

Does someone know if the F-27 will stay in the goldenknights colourscheme? Cant find information about it on the internet.

There a just a few certainties in life, this not being one of them. However, the new owners have expressed themselves quite a lot about the legacy and the beauty of the aircraft in several articles, so I would be surprised if they would change the colours and come up with someting else when appearing on the airshow scene.

According to the article at Aironline.nl, the aircraft WILL remain in this colour scheme. For how long is obviously uncertain, but the current owners have NO plans to change it.
