TC-TON  Fokker F-27 Friendship               (c/n  10124)


                                     This was another of the Friendships built to an Aviaco order and not taken up by the Spanish carrier
                                     (now defunct).   Jerry Elmas' photo above shows it in its ultimate livery.  In 1973 it was traded back
                                     to Fokkers and it was sold to a US broker becoming N47SB, briefly.     It was soon on-sold to the
                                     Burmese Air Force wherein it became '5001'.   Sometime in the new millennium it was transferred to
                                     Myanma Airways as XY-AER when the (by then) Myanmar Air Force replaced it with a F-27-600
                                     bearing the same serial number.       It is reported to be stored at Rangoon (Oops, I mean Yangon). 
                                     Incidentally, the Taiwan Air Force also flies a Fokker serialed '5001'.        This one, however, is a
                                     Fokker 50, which has not prevented the ATDB Aero website from publishing a photo of that air-
