BAe 146 air tanker delivered to Neptune Aviation


Tronos’ BAe 146 air tanker was delivered to Neptune Aviation Services at Missoula, Montana, for further testing of her firefighting capabilities. Former Air Wisconsin BAe 146-200 N608AW (msn E2049) was modified by Tronos to carry a 3,000 US gal internal tank with four drop chutes. She made her first drop on 28 October, 2009. She was re-registered as N146FF on 12 May, and ferried as such to Missoula on 15 May, painted as ‘Tanker 40’, in a color scheme similar to that worn by Neptune Aviation Lockheed P2V Neptune air tankers.
