The author presents the definitive history of the British Aerospace 146, a short haul regional airliner manufactured by the U.K.-based company from 1983 until 2002. He purchased a collection of photos and documents related to the BAe 146 in 2016. Sifting through the ephemera launched a four-year deep dive that led him to the Royal Family, the FBI, and the people who built, flew, sold, and maintained the aircraft. The book tells the intimate behind-the-scenes story of the unlikely 4-engine jet that perhaps should have never been built at all and the airlines it touched. The author’s passion for the subject is unmatched, making this book, which features over 700 images on nearly 500 pages, a must-have for any commercial aviation enthusiast.
