Twentieth anniversary of BAe 146 roll-out

20 May marks the twentieth anniversary of the roll-out of the first BAe 146. The first BAe 146, registered G-SSSH to emphasize the type’s quietness, was rolled out at Hatfield on 20 May 1981. She later made her first flight on 3 September. Since then, the 146 and its successors, the Avro RJ and RJX, have become the best-selling British-built jetliner, with 385 examples built to date out of 399 ordered.
