‘Gate guard’ at Lelystad Airport

On November 19th, Lelystad Airport will celebrate its 50th anniversary.

As a tribute to this milestone, we have received this Cessna from ROC. Eric Sliphorst from ROCVA said, “This Cessna has served educational purposes for nearly 50 years. It’s wonderful to see that this aircraft, after years of faithful service, has been given a place of honor as the ‘gatekeeper’ at Lelystad Airport.”

The airport’s fire brigade team has renamed this aircraft to PH-EdK in honor of the former ‘havenmeester’of Lelystad Airport.

This Cessna was originally registered as PH-ALB in 1964 and in recent years was known as the key equipment for students at MBO College Airport Hoofddorp, where it carried the fictitious registration PH-SKS.
