Altair Airlines  Fokker F.28-4000 Fellowship N509                   (c/n   11161)


                                   Such was the growth of the Philadelphia-based regional carrier that, in 1980, it ordered a fleet of
                                   ten Dash-400 Fokker F.28 pure jets, new from the manufacturer.  N509 was one the first and went
                                   on-line in October of 1980.   It is seen above at home base Philadelphia International Airport in
