Gemini Jets G2QFA566 – 1/200 Scale Fokker 100 (F28 Mark 0100), QantasLink
Gemini Jets (Gemini200 series) diecast model G2QFA566 replicates in 1/200 scale the Fokker 100 (F28 Mark 0100), registration VH-NHY, operated by National Jet Systems for QantasLink.
QantasLink, founded in 2002, is the regional brand of Qantas. Routes are operated by subsidiary airlines: Eastern Australia Airlines, Sunstate Airlines, National Jet Systems and Network Aviation who operate the Fokker 100.
The F28 Mark 0100 “Fokker 100” is a Dutch medium-sized, twin jet regional airliner. It first flew on November 30, 1986, and entered service in February 1988 with Swissair. Production ended in 1997 with 283 airframes built. Bigger in size than the Fokker F28 Mark 4000 that it is based on, with increased maximum weights, fuel and passenger capacity. Other changes include a digital flight deck, updated avionics and more efficient engines and wings. Produced in several versions; an extended-range model, the shorter -70 (seating to 80), -100QC quick-change passenger/freighter and -100EJ (Executive Jet) that uses remanufactured airliners.
The airframe construction is all-metal with a semi-monocoque fuselage; low mounted cantilevered swept wings, T-tail and retractable tricycle undercarriage. The tail cone splits opened sideways acting as an air brake. The flight crew consists of two pilots and typically seats 97 passengers in two classes, maximum 122.
It uses two Rolls-Royce Tay Mk 650-15 Turbofan engines mounted on the rear of the fuselage. They give the aircraft a cruise speed of 800 km/h (497 mph), a maximum cruise speed of 856 km/h (531 mph), a service ceiling of 10,668m (35,000 ft) and range of 2,450 km (1,522 mi).
