This Day in Aviation History
April 4th, 1993
First flight of the Fokker 70.
The Fokker 70 is a narrow-body, twin-engined, medium-range, turbofan regional airliner produced by Fokker as a smaller version of the Fokker 100. Both the F70 and F100 were preceded by the first jet aircraft manufactured by Fokker, the Fokker F28 Fellowship. Since its first flight in 1993, 47 aircraft, plus one prototype, have been manufactured and 38 are still in active service with airlines around the world, especially European airlines….
