Default F27 Nostalgia

For the first two years of my aviation career, back in the early 80s, I was cabin crew on the F27, so I have a real soft spot for this beautiful little airliner. It was very much ahead of its time, and in my opinion outclassed the Handley Page Herald.

This short video in Dutch was made for Fokker during the final stages of design, and then the flight testing. Commentary in Dutch, but the presenter, who was a test pilot for the company, spoke English. However, his words are 'drowned out' with Dutch translation, but then, it was a Dutch aircraft, so I guess it's quite appropriate. Some nice footage, enjoy.
