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. Based on the Fokker F28 Mark 4000, bigger in size 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 Fokker 100 design is of an all-metal semi-monocoque construction. With a low mounted cantilevered swept wings, retractable tricycle undercarriage and T-tail. The tail cone splits open sideways, acting as an air brake. The flight crew consists of two pilots and typically seats 97 passengers in two classes, a maximum of 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 a range of 2,450 km (1,522 mi).
