BAe 146 / Avro RJ


#1

This is definitely missing from IF. The Bae146 is used by the RAF for VIP flights, as a business jet, TNT, CityLink, Swiss and various others. Itโ€™s a regional/short haul aircraft and something that IF could benefit from with global incoming!! Drop your votes here and have fun flying this little bad boy around the skies.

Give it a vote!! Haha


#7

I want this plane after the CRJ family!!!


#8

Only way is it vote guys!!


#9

That Spoiler are realy nice!!! :)


#10

Try to keep it down to one photo for this topic, thanks!


#11

Iโ€™ve only posted one photo? Or are you talking about the other posts? I thought the original was only 1 photo and subsequent posts were allowed however many they want?


#13

You are allowed to put various photos into a collage as long as the final product promptly results in a single individual image being published on the specific #features topic in question.


#14

Well put together feature request, love all the facts, specs and stats!


#15

The guy above my post posted a lot of pics.


#17

Yeah, actually, the Belgian livery you have shown is the SN Brussels airlines variant, it is the predecessor of Brussels airlines (when buyed by virgin I think) and before SN Brussels airlines was SABENA, so choose a good one, the SN is ugly but would make a great VA, the actual Brussels airlines is nice and the SABENA one is sexy


#18

I believe that the main reason for only one pic allowed is that pictures uses large amount of space on the Discourse servers. Space costs money.

On the other hand, I understand why users want to post more pictures. More photos showing the aircraft in different liveries and from different angles = more votes

Anyway, Well written and nice request @Mags885 ๐Ÿ˜Š

Fun fact about the BAe/Avro: They have no thrust reversers. Only spoilers, air brakes and wheel brakes.

Just my 0,02 cents


#19

Thanks very much, just hope it gets added eventually!! ๐Ÿ˜Š


#20

I like it. Itโ€™s a cool looking aircraft. Almost like a baby Globemaster. ๐Ÿ˜


#21

They donโ€™t operate it anymore, it was replaced by the ERJ


#22

Compared to normal wing spoilers these airbrakes aft in the aircraft are very efficient and it gives you a very distinct feeling and you really feel when the aircraft is braking ;)


#23

I hope this gets added. It would add a little variety to the twin engines we all see on IF. I would love to fly it into ELGC and other small fields.
