A brief history of the aircraft type and the airline is supplied with each model.
The Dutch aircraft manufacturer Fokker developed the 32 seat turboprop F.27 Friendship to
replace the DC-3. In 1956 Fokker licensed U.S. manufacturer Fairchild to produce the F.27.
In April 1958 the Fairchild F.27 flew and in November 1958 the first Fokker produced F.27-
100 was delivered to Aer Lingus. In November 1967 the F.27-500 (FH.227 in the U.S.) first
flew. The 500 was a stretched version and the most numerous with 123 being produced.
When production ended in 1987 there were 586 Fokker and 207 Fairchild aircraft built.
Ozark Airlines received F-27 c/n 58 on July 16, 1959 and operated it until November 1966.
In May 1967 the aircraft was leased to Wien Air Alaska and then in January 1968 Interior
Airways leased the aircraft. In December 1971 the aircraft was re-registered as N113TA for
Ward International before being sold to Texas Nevada Oil Company as N113SB. Over the
next 4 years the aircraft would be registered as N158WC, N113AS, N158WQ and 9Q-CST
for SOTRAF Constructions of Zaire-Congo. Finally in May 1984 the aircraft was delivered to
Wonderair as ZS-LPI of South Africa. On May 17,1984 the aircraft was a complete write-off
when it burned while on the ground in Namibia.
