A First Look Into The F70

The Fokker 70 was designed in the early 1990s as a shorter version of the F100. It features a reduced capacity and a shorter fuselage compared to the F100. It shares similar wing and cabin designs with minor differences. The prototype of the F70 was a modified F100 registered as PH-MKC, which had its inaugural flight in 1993. However, the F70 didn’t achieve the same level of popularity as the F100. This resulted in only 47 units produced during its production period. To this day, the largest operator of the F70 is Alliance Airlines in Australia with 34 units incorporated in its fleet.
