✈️ What is this strange aircraft with engines at the top? ✈️

Originally from the Fokker 70’s Wikipedia page and changed by me to make it more clearer

The Fokker 70 is a fuel efficient regional get designed by Fokker in the late 80s early 90s to be an upgrade to the old Fokker F28 Fellowship.

The Fokker 70 was designed on the requirements for some certain airlines, for which the Fokker 50 and ATR 42 were too small for and the Boeing 737 and MD-80 were too large for. The development consisted in cutting various sections of the fuselage of the Fokker 100, removing 4.62 metres (15.2 ft) of the plane’s total length but keeping the wings and tail. With these specifications, total capacity is 80 passengers, 70 in the U.S.


✈️ Why I think we should have the Fokker 70 ✈️

My opinion

As we know Fokker aircraft are slowly being replaced with Embraer aircraft, this is good and bad. Good because we get more modern planes as Fokker sadly went bankrupt in 1996. But bad as many good aircraft are being taken out of service. If this aircraft does get removed completely it would be a lovely tribute to the company. Plus we need more smaller regional jets.

Nice request! Might even free a vote for it 👀

KLM used to send these over to Manston airport before it closed. Would absolutely love to see this, and recreate the route!

Why is the passenger number 70 in the us?

From the Fokker 70’s Wikipedia page:


“Total capacity is 80 passengers, 70 in the U.S., due more to meet “scope clause” requirements than any Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certification”

Thank you very much :)

Would love both these liveries! Also, that JetAir Caribbean aircraft is the last Fokker ever built! Still flies in the lovely ABC islands.

It is sad… that is why I think it would be nice to have this aircraft in Infinite Flight

Yea! They fly where I live so I hope to recreate that in IF.

I saw this plane flying on Flightradar24 and thought it was a great plane. This has my vote.

Yay, thank you :)
