RoC Air Force Fokker 50 5002

Not sure if any of the RoC Air Force Fokker 50 hex codes are known. Anyway, I managed to tie one up today. 5002 is 899181. I’m pretty sure 5001 is 899180 but can’t confirm it 100%. Oh, and I have no clue about 5003: any info would be gratefully received. Smiley, Taoyuan, 30-Apr-2017. Credits: … Continue reading »

Taipei Taoyuan: 23-28 Apr

Some highlights from Taoyuan. There was a strange one on 25-Apr. Something with a hex of C02971 was in and out over lunchtime. That hex equates to C-FPSA but my big database of aeroplanes tells me that reg used to belong to a Dornier 228 that was sold in Indonesia in 2014. This hex was … Continue reading »
