British Aerospace 146

The British Aerospace 146, a short-haul and regional airliner, was manufactured in the United Kingdom by British Aerospace. The concept for the aircraft originated in the early 1970s when Hawker Siddeley initiated a new project for a 70-seat regional airliner featuring a high wing and T-tail, named the HS.146 Project. Envisioned to bridge the gap between turboprop-powered airliners and small jet airliners, the project faced a setback due to the 1973 oil crisis. Despite the challenges, British Aerospace persisted in development and successfully re-launched the project in 1978. The British Aerospace 146-100, introduced in 1983, boasted a luxurious interior, while the 146-100QT variant served as the freight configuration.
