BAE 146-200 - UOR for Two

MOD has gone out to tender on a UOR for two BAE 146-200 aircraft. The buy is estimated to cost 6m.

When BAE Systems sold its Asset Management outfit a few months ago they made 500k or so per aircraft.

jd: presumably because that is how you spend taxpayers' money. No doubt the owners of those aircraft advertised on the website will be beating a path to Bristol with their best and final offers.

Might be plenty sitting at Southend, but remember commonality is everything, unless they do not have totally incompatibility in every respect, cockpit, avionics, instrument fit and layout, totally different engine variants, totally different mod Specs, (the rarer and most importantly incompatible with the rest of the 200 series and more specifically the other one) then the MOD will not touch them.

Is this a different acquisition to the pair that QinetiQ are supposed to be getting?

The Qinetiq aircraft will be an RJ70 and an RJ100, so this is different.

Could these be the long rumoured 'in-theatre' transport to free up dwindling numbers of C-130s?

Nut Loose, I wonder if they considered getting Marshalls to upgrade a couple of Dominies?

Low hours, only 46 years old, respared 22 years ago, get them respared again as part of the upgrade, they already have a toilet.
