Bulgaria Air: Last BAe 146 will be Flying Fire Extinguisher

Written by on September 29, 2016 in Bulgaria, Business, Economy - No comments

Bulgaria Air has sold its last commuter aircraft of the model BAe 146-200 (registration LZ-HBZ), according to the publication Skyliner Aviation, quoted by the site austrianwings.info.

It says, the plane with four engines was purchased by Neptune Aviation and will be used as a flying extinguisher of forest fires. For that purpose, the aircraft will have to be reconstructed.

The BAe 146 is 28 years old and presumably had tens of thousands of take-offs and landings under it’s belt, when it was sold. Bae stands for British Aerospace.

Bulgaria Air now uses two Airbus A319s, three A320s, two Boeing 737-300 as well as four Embraer E190s, which were leased in 2011.
