    Interesting post Matt!
    There is a BAe-146 here in Medan sitting on “our” apron. They just painted on the same logo and name as the one you have there as well so I guess you will be seeing more soon. I think they are ugly bastards… 😉

      I love the 146! I reckon if I *had* to fly a big jet, it would be the one I’d prefer to fly. Four engines and anhedral wings look awesome! It’s pretty STOL too considering it’s payload capabilities.

    Started flying today on the Medan – Nias – Padang route. Met up with it in Binaka, it is an awesome sight.
