Third Avro RJ70 being readied for MDLR


Avro RJ70 G-CDNC in MDLR colors at Norwich (Michael Burdett)

The third Avro RJ70 for Indian airline MDLR Airlines was seen at Norwich on 2 September being readied for delivery. Like both of the airline’s two current RJ70s, she is a former Turkish Airlines example. G-CDNC (msn E1252) had originally been built for US airline Business Express, but that airline’s bankruptcy led her not to be taken up and she was sold to THY in May 1996. She was returned to BAE Systems in August 2005, and had been stored at Kemble since October of that year.
