BAE Systems Corporate Air Travel is trading in its long-serving BAe 146-100, G-BLRA (msn E1017), for a larger series 200, G-BTVT (msn E2200 ex D-ACFA). The former Eurowings 146 has been in storage at Southend since being returned off-lease to BAE Systems in June 2010. She was ferried to Norwich on 21 February for painting into BAE Systems’ corporate colors, emerging on 13 March. She was re-registered as G-TYPH, reflecting her future use as a support aircraft for deliveries of Typhoon jet fighters. Once G-TYPH enters service, G-BLRA will be withdrawn from use and is likely to be scrapped.
