F-27 85-1608 on the move

SCOOP: Nederlandse stichting koopt F27 400M Troopship
30 oktober 2019 |

DEN HAAG – De Stichting Vliegend Nederlands Cultureel Erfgoed heeft Golden Knight 85-1608 aangekocht.

Sinds de bouw bij Fokker in 1985 is deze F27 400M Troopship het werkpaard geweest van het parachuteteam ‘Golden Knights’.

Na 35 jaar trouwe dienst werd deze C-31A pas vorige maand opgevolgd door een De Havilland Dash-8. Nadien werd de Fokker te koop aangeboden op een veilingwebsite.

De C-31A verruilt spoedig haar thuishaven Pope Air Force Base nabij Fort Bragg voor Laurenburg-Maxton waar het vliegtuig wordt klaargemaakt voor de trans-Atlantische oversteek.
Nu een jaar en een dag (01-11-2020, 19:30 UTC) later op ADS-B, Noord-West van Altanta op FL110, 184 kts richting Noord.
Iemand die iets meer weet?

Ik hoorde op het werk inderdaad wel berichten dat ie deze week op Lelystad zou moeten landen. Helaas geen exacte details.

Great to see the topic is active again. A further search revealed it actually landed at Goose Bay and is expected to move to Kef today and depart in a few hours arriving there late afternoon.

So Lelystad tomorrow afternoon if all goes well?

Are you sure? Flightaware suggests that the aircraft is still en route, about to land at Keflavik around 1600 GMT. Radarbox and FR24 both suggest something broadly similar.

IMHO, it looks more like they DID RTB Goose and are now giving it another go...

...but a 16.00 GMT arrival at KEF seems highly unlikely... 19.00 GMT looks more realistic.

EDIT: Flightaware has now amended the ETA to 18.25 GMT.
