This Fokker F-27-500F Friendship was delivered to Malaysian Airlines on October 10, 1971 as 9V-BCW. Ordered in 55-seat configuration, with (2) Rolls Royce Dart 532’s. She was re-numbered twice during her years at Malaysian, 9M-ARL and 9M-MCH.


FedEx acquired the aircraft in 1990 for use as a feeder, and re-registered it as N718FE with Mountain Air Cargo. In 2005, the aircraft was officially taken out of service and served as a training aid for ground crew at ATL for 6 years. FedEx donated N718FE in March of 2011, along with our 727-22C. She was dismantled and moved to the museum’s permanent home in April 2011, and was re-assembled in 2013.
