As far as I know British Royal Family is using this aeroplane as well.

I’m imagining this with United’s Battleship grey Livery

Oh that is a very pretty livery!

@AmericanEagle I think the Royal Air Force unfortunately retired their last BAe 146-100s and -200s earlier this year. They had a solid run though, and it’d still be cool to see them in Infinite Flight.

@United403 Can’t go wrong with a little retro action, I do like the Saul Bass livery a lot too though.

Turkish Airlines used BAe AVRO RJ as well. It’s a really interesting aircraft I’m out of votes but I would vote for it.

Yes, sadly the RAF retired they’re 146s, but they’re still used by qinetiq (shown above) as a trainer plane, they’re based at boscombe Down, where the MOD are!

@United403 Isn’t that also classified as “Saul Bass”? Honestly not sure, I don’t know too much about United’s liveries.

They did indeed, quite a nice livery as well, would be a lot of fun to fly into Austria and Switzerland for example.

@Hector_Wilson Ah very cool!

@George1 Also a very pretty livery. Can’t go wrong with a little chrome.

Both are actually RJ70’s. Used for training student test pilots, at QCFO (QinetiQ Civil Flying Organisation) previously ETPS (Empire Test Pilots School).

They are also used as trials aircraft. Currently one is trialling the new radar, for the RAF’s Eurofighter Typhoon FGR4.

The MOD have a small presence there at Boscombe Down now, along with all three tri services. The site is mostly run by QinetiQ and consists fairly big presence by Boeing too.

Yup! It’s know as both. The Rainbow livery is the more official name, but Saul Bass is more commonly used. He’s the one who first designed the Tulip logo!

And here it is! Note the UA Express livery did not have the Tulip logo on the tail.

Ah okay, that makes sense.

And yeah I noticed the United Express livery missed that little logo.

Bump! One of my favourite planes and definitely one of the most iconic. And, would be nice to see RAF Royal Family livery, beautiful.
