Air Wisconsin ends BAe 146 operations

Air Wisconsin retired its last BAe 146 on 16 April. The airline has been winding down its BAe 146 operations since last April, when bankrupt United Airlines announced that SkyWest and GoJet would replace Air Wisconsin in the United Express network by 2006. By the end of 2005, only five series 200As remained, to cover the lucrative ski season flights into Aspen. BAe 146-200A N291UE (msn E2084) flew the last departure out of Aspen on the morning of 16 April, flying to Denver and then continuing to Des Moines (Iowa), Chicago O’Hare, and finally to Air Wisconsin’s base at Appleton, Wisconsin. It was scheduled to operate a final Appleton-Chicago round trip, but in the event this was cancelled due to inclement weather. The last Air Wisconsin BAe 146 revenue arrival was flown by N292UE (msn E2087), which arrived back in Denver from a round trip to Des Moines, at 19:53 local time.
