Vincent Aviation‘s BAe 146-200 ZK-ECO (msn E2130) has landed a movie role. She was painted with “Quansair” titles for filming of several scenes of a new movie, Mister Pip, starring Hugh Laurie. On 15 August, she flew to Timaru, which was standing in for the Australian outback town of Mt Isa. The weather proved uncooperative, however, with near-zero temperatures and overcast skies — a far cry from the 30C temperatures usually experienced in Mt Isa.
