The arrival of the Fokker F-27s
The addition to the Aramco fleet in 1966 provided versatility for cargo and passenger delivery.
In 1966, two Fokker F-27s were the latest aircraft to join Aramco’s fleet, which consisted mainly of Fairchild F-27 planes. The Fokker’s versatility meant that it could be used for cargo, passengers, a combination of both or as an executive aircraft. In this photograph, captain S.R. Wolters and captain J.E. Hollenbeck examine the slight differences between the Fokker-27 and the Fairchild F-27. (Photo: B.H. Moody)
