Stored F-27s at Cologne to Go

by Matt Falcus

You may be aware that there are a number of stored Fokker F-27 aircraft at Cologne/Bonn airport, owned by WDL Aviation. These have been present a number of years, stored at the far side of the cargo terminal area and only just visible from the terminal viewing deck.

It has recently been announced that these aircraft are to move on. Although mostly they will not be scrapped, they will be scattered all over Europe. So if you need them, now is the time to head over to Cologne to catch them!

The aircraft are:
D-BCEA (FH227)

One aircraft will remain at Cologne/Bonn. The rest will be used as training aircraft and for display purposes around Europe, including one at a furniture store in Sweden.

A timescale has not been announced, but expect it to be very soon.
