Damaged BA Connect Avro RJ100 returns to service

Avro RJ100 G-BXAR (msn E3298), who was damaged at Birmingham last 29 December, has returned to service. She got stuck in the mud while undertaking high power engine runs, sustaining damage to the lower fuselage in the process, and then was further damaged when one of the vehicle aiding in her extrication struck her, damaging the elevator. After several months of repairs at Exeter, she returned to Birmingham late on 13 April painted in the new BA Connect colors, and re-entered service the following day.
