Minden Air files for bankruptcy protection

Minden Air Corp. filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in August. The company has invested considerable resources in the development of a BAe air tanker to replace its Lockheed P-2 Neptunes in the last five years. However, its first conversion, N446MA/Tanker 146 (msn E2111), failed its drop tests in June 2014, and the company apparently ran out of resources to modify it and try again. Minden Air also has a second 146, N556MA (msn E2106), awaiting conversion.
