BAe 146-300QT G-BPNT

Newly modified BAe 146-300QT G-BPNT (Stefan Bogdanel)

The first BAe 146-300 to be converted to freighter configuration under the relaunched QT program made her first flight from Bacău on 29 January. The former Flightline series 300, G-BPNT (msn E3126) was fitted with a large cargo door by Aerostar. G-BPNT had been returned to BAE Systems off-lease in May 2008, and ferried to Bacău. She still wears the colors of VLM, from a previous lease.
