Euroboy - presume you mean the subsidiary - World Aviation Support..... I cant imagine 40 offers being received for the BAC 1-11's which are BWA's only 'assets'
I would guess that the likes of Heavylift, FR Aviation, FLS etc would be interested in the WAS workshops.
Hey Dan, strange place for this to live.
I understand that the BAC111's are actually owned by the bank....which doesn't leave much on the airline side to buy.
The maintenance side , I would have thought, is worth having as a going concern.

Think this one's a bit out of date. .. .The assets, for what they are worth, of British World Airlines were purchased from Kroll's and a new company BWA (2002) Ltd formed.. .. .Inflite purchased WAS the other week.. .. .As for the poor old 1-11's, they are still kicking around at SEN. It's like an aircraft graveyard at times. anyone want a Koda Air 707
