    Purchase by Dutch Transport Museum of first production Fokker F.28 Fellowship PH-MOL

    The Dutch Transport Museum pop-up museum in Nieuw-Vennep has received a contribution of € 90,000 from the Mondriaan Fund for the purchase of a Fokker F.28 Fellowship. This aircraft, which is located in the African state of Mali, is the oldest jet airliner of the Dutch aircraft factory that still exists. Mondriaan Fund
    The Dutch Transport Museum has started a collection campaign to bring this special Fokker F.28 Fellowship to the Netherlands. The device has been at Bamako airport in Mali for 16 years. With this wonderful contribution from the Mondriaan Fund, a major step has now been taken towards the realization of the rescue of this aircraft. A total of € 250,000 is required for this.
    The Fokker F.28 Fellowship was designed in the sixties, partly as a supplement and partly as a successor to the Fokker F.27 Friendship, and flew for the first time in 1967.
    241 F.28 Fellowships were built by Fokker at Amsterdams airport Schiphol. Still, no Fokker F.28 is stored in the Netherlands until now. The Nederlands Transport Museum wants to change that.
    The aircraft that is now at Bamako airport in Mali has been keeping the PH-MOL registration for a long time. The device has been owned by Fokker for many years and has been leased to many international airlines. But many Dutch holiday passengers also got to know the plane when it flew for the Dutch charter airliner Martinair.
    Cooperation defense
    To save this special plane from demolition, the Nederlands Transport Museum started a fundraising campaign among private individuals and companies. € 250,000 is required for transport to the Netherlands and the restoration. The museum hopes to be able to purchase and repatriate the Fokker F.28 in the spring of 2019. This involves intensive cooperation with the Dutch embassy and the Dutch military mission in Mali to successfully organize the operation.
    Do you help?
    It is the intention that this particular piece of Dutch pride will be exhibited in a restored state in a few years’ time. Anyone who wants to contribute to the action to save the oldest Fokker jet airliner is invited to donate a donation. NL91 RABO 0325 2015 87 from the Nederlands Transport Museum, o.v.v. ‘Donation Fokker F.28’.
    Donors who mention their e-mail address with this transfer receive an admission ticket with which they can view the Fokker F.28 Fellowship at a later date. More information about the museum can be found on and
