How many Fokker F28's still flying ?
How many F28's (F28, F28-1000, F28-3000 and F28-4000) still flying around the World ?
Indonesia was a major user (probably around 80 or 90 of the 244 built) but now most if not all are parked up , there's 4 here at Halim , probably half a dozen at Soekarno Hatta and 4 at Pondok Cabe. I don't know of any still flying here other than 2 operated by the Indonesian Air Force
I'm looking at buying some complete aircraft to break up for parts and scrap but it seems the market has shrunk to almost nothing.
I spoke with one of the biggest buyers of the F28 this morning and he guesstimates 10 still operating which seems low.
