Not the very best picture, but a very interesting one. This 1965 F27 first flew in the Pakistani civil register before starting service with the Pakistani Air Force. The aircraft now flies as (FK-)77 within the same air force.

Seen here prior to leaving on lease to Citylink Airways (India) as VT-ETE in February 1993. Under two months later it had returned and was once again PH-FON. Went to WDL (Germany) in November 1995 as D-AELL remaining in the basic Citilink Airways colours. It was retired not very long afterwards and was moved next to the Flight Academy building at Mönchengladbach Airport, Germany. It has been there ever since right up to this day (22 July 2019).
