Last Ansett BAe 146 leaves Brisbane

BAe 146-300 VH-EWS (msn E3197) was the last Ansett aircraft to leave Brisbane. She had been undergoing a D check when the airline went bankrupt, and completion of the check was obviously delayed. It ultimately had to be completed in the open after the maintenance base was sold to Qantas. She was given a water salute as she taxied out for her ferry flight to Melbourne on 16 August.
