The Fokker 100 is a medium size twin engined turbofan airliner. Fokker announced it was developing the Fokker 100
as the successor of the F-28 Fellowship in November 1983. Fokker 100 is the popular name of the aircraft, the official name is F28 Mk.0100.
The Fokker 100 is based on the basic airframe of the F-28-4000, but stretched, thoroughly modernised, including a number of key design changes.
Improvements includes the economic RollsRoyce Tay 620-15 turbofans, revised wing design with greater span and aerodynamic efficiency and a modern EFIS
glass flightdeck. Two prototypes were built, the first flying on 30 November 1986, the second on 25 February 1987. The first production
aircraft flew on 5 Oktober 1987 and the certification was granted in November 1987. The first customer
delivery, to Swissair, occurred on 29 February 1988. The Fokker 100 was offered in a number of versions including higher gross
weight options of the standard airliner, the Fokker 100QC with a large cargo-door on the left side right behind the cockpit and
the Fokker Executive Jet 100 corporate shuttle or VIP transport. The design also forms the basis for the shorter Fokker 70,
while the 130 seat class Fokker 130 had also been studied. A total of 277 Fokker F.28 Mk. 0100 were built. Production ended after Fokker collapsed
due to financial problems on 15 March 1996.
The 1992-built Fokker F28-0100 s/n 11407 was testflown as PH-EZS on 15 July 1992. The airliner
was delivered to American Airlines as N1424M on 13 August 1992. After being withdrawn from use
with American Airlines, the Fokker 100 was ferried to Mojave in July 2004. After a period of storage at Mojave, the aircraft
was transferred to Croatia and delivered to Trade Air on 12 January 2005. The 9A-BTD is operated since
by Trade Air (TDR) for SunAdria. On 3 and 5 October 2007, the 9A-BTD operated a passenger charter
Groningen-Bologna-Groningen. Sun Adria / Trade Air is based at Zagreb Airport in Croatia and uses the ICAO code TDR.
