The British Aerospace 146, a short-haul and regional airliner crafted in the United Kingdom by British Aerospace, originated from plans conceived in the early 1970s. Hawker Siddeley initiated the HS.146 Project, envisioning a 70-seat regional airliner with a high wing and T-tail to bridge the gap between turboprop-powered and small jet airliners. However, the 1973 oil crisis necessitated a temporary halt to the project. Undeterred, British Aerospace resumed development and successfully relaunched the initiative in 1978.
The British Aerospace 146-200 emerged with a further extended fuselage, featuring the 146-200QC as the freight/cargo variant. Additionally, the 146-200 variant, rebranded as the RJ85 by Avro International, showcased an enhanced cabin layout and more efficient powerplants.
