Recommended Posts

Here's an aircraft no developer has made yet, the Fairchild F-27 and FH-227, bet PMDG could do a great job modeling this plane.

Better known as the Fokker F27 I guess? It's a shame isnt it, may not be a runaway success sales wise which could be why there havent been any takers so far.

A couple of reasonable F50's out there tho.

Yes, it was known in Europe as the Fokker F.27, but in the US as the Fairchild F-27, then later came its stretched by 6 ft. cousin, the Fairchild Hiller FH-227, they both were used by many airlines in the US, I remember personally seeing Piedmont Airlines fly both, in the 50's & 60's for the F-27, then the 60's & 70's the FH-227B, they both used those screaming Rolls Royce Dart engines, good memories.
