She returned to the United Kingdom in 1999, and was then sold to Malmö Aviation in 2001, and flew for Malmö and successor Braathens Regional Airlines (BRA) for the rest of her operational life, aside from a brief wet-lease to Sweden’s Skyways in 2006. She was ferried to Southend in December 2018, at which point she had recorded 36,440 hrs of flight time, and 39,795 cycles. She was moved to the scrapping area on 15 May. Her wings and tail section had been cut off by 22 May.
