The fuselage of former Mesaba Avro RJ85 N509XJ arrives at Air Spray’s base at Red Deer (Air Spray)

Air Spray has acquired the hulk of former Mesaba Avro RJ85 N509XJ (msn E2321) for use as a flight trainer for its BAe 146 air tanker program. N509XJ has been stored at Calgary since late 2007, during which time she was stripped of useful parts to supply the Dubai Air Wing’s active RJ85s. Air Spray had the fuselage trucked to its base at Red Deer, Alberta, where she arrived on 16 May.
