Last hurrah for G-TYPH

In early July, BAE Systems Corporate Air Travel retired BAe 146-200 G-TYPH (msn E2200), replacing her with an Embraer ERJ 145. G-TYPH was parked at Warton, awaiting her fate. But in mid-August she was pressed briefly back into service. With one 145 undergoing heavy maintenance, Corporate Air Travel found itself short-handed. It leased Jota’s Avro RJ85 G-JOTR (msn E2294) to fly a Warton to Farnborough roundtrip and then called one more time for G-TYPH’s services. After a test flight on 8 August, she flew to Farnborough on 15 August, returning to Warton on the same day, then flying to Cardiff on the 16 and back to Warton on the 17. Then on 22 August, she was ferried to Cranfield, where she is expected to be parted out to help support the RAF 146 fleet.
