The Fokker F27 "Friendship" was designed in the 1950s as a faster, more comfortable, pressurized successor to the Douglas DC-3. The prototypes first flew in 1955 and the commercial F27s were produced from 1958 to 1987, after which the type was replaced by the Fokker 50. 586 aircraft were built and used for passenger, cargo or postal services. As of 2018, 10 of them remain in service and several others are preserved. This model is available for FlightGear since January 2021.
