Queen’s Flight BAe 146 rescues baby


A BAe 146 from No.32 Squadron (The Royal) made news when it airlifted a baby that needed an urgent operation from Northolt to Glasgow on 22 January. The baby needed an operation for a rare condition, and Glasgow’s Yorkhill Hospital for Sick Children was the only hospital with the necessary facilities and an open bed. An RAF Hercules from Lyneham was scheduled to make the flight, but it burst a tyre on landing at Northolt. The Royal Flight then offered the 146 as a replacement.
