They had. But when I requested some info several years ago they were ready to send it for 500 euros.
Yes, they told me a 1998 Cargo OAG would cost me about the same. I never called back.
People randomly offer financial compensation for completing projects, for those you guys reading this who want the retro world bad enough to spend good money aide the ongoing projects with information instead of offers for cash. A 1998 Cargo OAG, 1989 Cargo OAG, or even a 1990-1997 Cargo OAG really, would produce a lot of flightplans and encourge paints on the new models as well.

You know,flying in those days was a bit of an adventure that I for one miss.My first flight was in a HP Hermes a modified Hastings back in 1957. Lost an engine on take off from Luqa Malta,thanks it had three more.I say my most enjoyable one was the Canadair Merlin powered Argonaut. There is nothing like the pilot announcing well chaps the airfield is down ther with Germany covered in cloud.We have to land as we havnt the fuel to go back.R.A.F comet.

Superb effort Chris on probably the best turboprop airliner to ever enter service.
We had quite a few of them in Australia flying for the major domestic operators at the time ie. Ansett, TAA, East-West, Airlines of New South Wales, Airlines of South Australia, and MacRobertson Miller Airline. The F-27 was flying in Australian skies until 2011 when the last of them was retired.
Here's a link to the South Australian Aviation's Museum site of a PDF which gives a brief history of this iconic aircraft in Australian service: "http://www.saam.org.au/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/SAAM-Profiles-FOKKER-F27-FRIENDSHIP.pdf"
