Australia’s Pionair has taken delivery of a third BAe 146 freighter, 146-200QT VH-SFW (msn E2105). She had been the last series 200QT operated by Pan Air Líneas Aéreas, and had been in storage at Bruxelles when the airline was renamed ASL Airlines Spain. After receiving post-storage, she flew a flight test on 17 November, then started her delivery flight on the following day, still wearing basic TNT colors. She arrived at Pionair’s base at Sydney Bankstown on 24 November. She is due to join fleetmates VH-SIF (msn E2119) and VH-SFV (msn E2086) in service for Virgin Australia Cargo.
