KLM today closed the book on 90 years of history, operating what is likely to be its last scheduled service aboard a propeller-driven plane when a KLM CityHopper Fokker 50 made the journey from London Heathrow to Amsterdam Schiphol.KLM has been operating Fokker aircraft almost as long as it has been around--the carrier's first flights were with a leased de Havilland DH-16 in 1919, interestingly on the same London-Amsterdam route that closed KLM's Fokker 50 run. In early 1920, it started operating a Fokker II and III. CityHopper still operates Fokker 70s and 100s, but they are slowly being phased out by Embraer 190s. (The carrier's jet age began in March 1960 with the introduction of DC-8 service in this airplane.)As for the Fokker 50, here's some of what the OEM had to say about it...back when the OEM existed.
