KLM Fokker 70 Fleet - "Where are they now?"      Dave Rose

The iconic Fokker 70 became DTVs most frequent visitor over the years, plying the Amsterdam route for KLM Cityhopper. The final flights took place in late October, with KLM renewing their fleet with less fuel thirsty Embraer 175's.

However, there is still life in the old birds!! KLM looked after their fleet very well, with no expense spared and most have found new homes in far flung places. The list below shows that most have been snapped up, and the most recent frames are stored awaiting their new operators. The fact that only 2 frames have been scrapped is a true testiment to quality Dutch engineering.
