The last Friendship


Another item found in the Timaru museum hangar during my Christmas runaround was the nose section of the last Fokker F27 built (1986).

This is VT-NED c/n 10692 as operated by NEPC Airlines.

It was broken up at Woodbourne after having sat there for some years following non payment of accounts for maintenance done by Safe Air.
I rather like the nosewheel - much less agricultural than the main undercarriage of the airframe of ZK-BXG at Ashburton.


There are a stack of photos of it in a more complete state on Google.
