Posts about BAe 146s being broken up have become depressingly frequent. The latest victim of the breaker’s axe was series 100 G-BLRA (ms E1017), which had most recently been operated by the BAE Systems Corporate Air Travel department. She has been parked at Exeter since May 2011, after being replaced by series 200 G-TYPH (msn E2200). After being slowly stripped of useful spares, her wings and tail were cut off in early January. The fuselage was then transported to ASI at Kemble, who ended the job. E1017 had initially been built for Aspen Airways in 1984.
