With only about 200 ever built worldwide and far fewer still in service, finding a Fokker 50 to fly can be quite a challenge. But the Fokker 50 is the heart and soul of small Swedish airline Amapola Flyg, which got its start carrying mail and now operates passenger flights to smaller communities throughout Sweden.
Gabriel Leigh recently joined the crew from Amapola for a trip from Stockholm to Hemavan and back. Stay tuned for more on Fokker 50 as Leigh visits the Amapola Flyg maintenance facility.

In this video join Gabe Leigh on a roundtrip from Johannesburg to Vilankulos in Mozambique and back. Outbound is on the ERJ-135 and the return is on the ERJ-170 (including a business class “solo” seat sold as economy). These are quick and simple flights but the service is exceptional considering the flight length and the scenery is even more so.

In this video we take a very special sightseeing flight aboard Daisy, an 80-year old DC-3 maintained and kept airworthy by an organization in Sweden called Flygande Veteraner. SE-CFP flew in D-Day and later flew for SAS, and it wears a fetching classic SAS livery to this day.
