Fokker was a Dutch aircraft manufacturer named after its founder, Anthony Fokker. The company operated under several different names, starting out in 1912 in Germany, moving to Netherlands in 1919. During its most successful period in the 1920s and 1930s, it dominated the civil aviation market. Fokker went into bankruptcy in 1996.
The Fokker 100 is a medium size twin-turbofan airliner from the Fokker company.
Low operational costs & almost no competition in 100-seat short-range class made it a best seller when it was introduced in the late 1980s, but improved models of the Boeing 737 and Airbus A319 affected sales & Fokker became insolvent. Production ended in 1997 with 283 airframes delivered. In Aug. '06, 229 Fokker 100 aircraft remained in airline service with 47 airlines around the world.
