After several years of storage, former Titan Airways BAe 146-200QC G-ZAPO (msn E2176) was scrapped in late July. She had operated her last flight for Titan in March 2011, at which time she had accumulated a total time of 27,426 hours and 26,966 landings. After post-lease maintenance, she had been ferried to Kemble on 17 May. And there she had remained, in the hope of finding a new operator. When none appeared, she was finally moved into the Chevron hangar in January 2016 for parting out, and then to the scrapping area by the end of June. The breakers showed up on 19 July, and finished their job by 27 July.
