Fokker F.50 OO-VLE (c/n 20132) is seen here proceeding to the runway for take off, after having taken in its passengers at the ramp of Rotterdam IAP on July 20th, 2000.
VLM was founded in Feb.1992 but operations did not start until 15May93. Homeplate is Antwerp,Belgium.

Rebranding is a slow process: while the new colourscheme was introduced Jan.2004, F.50 OO-VLV (c/n 20160) is seen here at EHAM on July 25th, 2005 in its old livery. Webtitles have been added, though.

Fokker F.50 OO-VLY (c/n 20181) was the first to be painted in the new colourscheme; the paintwork was done at Aviation Cosmetics at Eindhoven (the Netherlands) and presented to the eye of the world on 27Jan04. It is seen here landing at rw36R at Amsterdam IAP in May05.

VLM Airlines merged into Cityjet and adopted the BCY callsign from 11Jan10
