Former Ansett BAe 146-200 VH-JJQ (msn E2038) has had all her useful parts removed at Brisbane. She had been undergoing repairs at Brisbane for wing corrosion when the airline went bankrupt. Work had ceased, and she had remained in storage until the decision to part her out was made by Ansett’s administrator in early June. Usable parts will be shipped to England, while the fuselage and wings will be used by the local Aviation Australia training facility for engineering and cabin crew training. A similar fate has befallen VH-JJX (msn E2127) at Townsville. She will be used by the airport fire department as a training aid.
