Former NJI BAe 146-300 G-BSXZ in storage at Exeter (Anthony Hutchings)

Another BAe 146 has been parted out. Series 300 G-BSXZ (msn E3174) was gradually dismantled by Casco Aero Ltd during September. Built for Taiwan’s Makung Airlines (later Uni Air) in 1990 as B-1776, she had then joined British Airways franchisee National Jet Italia in 2001 as G-NJIB. Following the latter’s bankruptcy, she had remained parked at Exeter. Lingering legal disputes arising from NJI’s collapse prevented her from finding a new home. Since 2002, she had been registered to Flightline as a convenience, but was never operated.
