Bahrain Defence Force RJ85 at Norwich (Steven Mills)

The Bahrain Defence Force has taken delivery of former Azzurra Air Avro RJ85 EI-CNK (msn E2306) as A9C-HWR. The aircraft had been stored at Exeter since late 2003, when Air Malta repossessed the four RJ70s and three RJ85s it had leased to Azzurra Air for non-payment. After maintenance work, she was flown to Norwich on 6 January for painting, and then departed Norwich on 20 January. She joins RJ85 A9C-BDF (msn E2390), delivered in 2001.
