Painted as the Fokker F27 prototype PH-NIV (c/n 10101), but it is in fact ex N19XE / HA-FAD. Preserved by the Coöperatieve Vereniging (= Cooperative Society) Anthony Fokker Park and placed on display here (near the former Fokker factory on the east side of Schiphol Airport) on 12 Jul 2012. Initially parked on the grass, it was mounted on the poles on 12 Mar 2013.

This Friendship was eventually put on poles in the pond at the Anthony Fokker Business Park at the former Fokker factory site. It is painted as the prototype (c/n 10101) although this is rather awkward as it's a stretched F.27-500, formerly N19XE.
