BAe RJ85

The British Aerospace 146 is a short-haul and regional airliner that was manufactured in the United Kingdom by British Aerospace. The plans for the aircraft were conceived in the early 1970s, when Hawker Siddeley launched a new project for a 70-seat regional airliner with a high wing and T-tail, called the HS.146 Project. The new aircraft was intended to fill the gap between turboprop-powered airliners and small jet airliners. Unfortunately, due to the 1973 oil crisis the project had to be put on hold. British Aerospace had pursued the development however, and was able to re-launch the project in 1978. The British Aerospace 146-200 had a further extended fuselage, with the 146-200QC being the freight/cargo variant. The 146-200 variant was also produced under the RJ85 designation, by Avro International, featuring improved cabin layout and more efficient powerplants.
