JOTA Aviation acquires its first BAe 146 for charters

JOTA Aviation (Southend) has acquired its first BAe 146. Previously the company operated King Air 90s for ad hoc passenger and cargo charter flights.

The new BAE 146-200 is pictured arriving at Southend from Manston. Manston is being closed.

This could well be the last commercial aircraft to depart from Manston unless the African DC-8 does fly out as per the photo of mine you kindly used.

This airliner was delivered to Pacific Southwest in 1985 as N364PS and was last operated by Flightline as G-OZRH and stored at Southend. It then became N880PA and flew to Manston in February 2013.

The aircraft has now been re-registered as G-SMLA (msn E2047) recently.
