Just purchased the F27 Fokker Friendship 100/200/300 from PCA. I installed it easily yesterday and took it on its first flight from Devonport to Melbourne. This is reminiscent of when I first left Tassy to come to Victoria in 1970. It was the good ol' Friendship I flew in on that day.
While I have yet to master all the panels of this aircraft, I am loving it from the word go. It looks just great and personally I prefer its appearance over the Dash 8. What is particularly fantastic is the sound of its Rolls Royce Dart engines. The whine and whistle of these is just perfect. I'm sure I will be spending many happy hours in this old girl.
