Fokker 100 - the largest production aircraft Dutch aircraft company of the same name.

The Fokker 100 is a narrow-body medium-range jet aircraft that can accommodate up to 107 passengers (hence the number 100 in the name) and is designed for short and medium flights. The basis for this aircraft was the Fokker F28 glider of the same company. In the developed model, the fuselage was increased by 5,51 meters, which made it possible to increase the number of passengers to 107 people instead of 85 people in the F28-4000 model. Due to the increase in the fuselage, the wing design was revised towards increased aerodynamic efficiency. The wingspan of the F100 has increased by almost 28 meters compared to the F3. At a hundred square meters it is 28,08 meters, and at the twenty-eighth it is 25,1 meters. The interior equipment was also changed, including the interior of the cabin.
