Just curious: The well known orange/blue dutch government/Queen's flight Fokker 70 has been seen as far away from base as Australia, the Antilles, New Zealand, etc. Is it a special aux. tank aircraft or is it a standard center tank version? If it's a standard 70 with approx. 1600nm range theese trips could be "interesting for the vip passengers. Has anybody got info on it?

No inside information here, but I think that the aircraft is sometimes ferried to a far away location in several hops while the passengers fly out there by airline.
