Versions of the 146-200 include the -200QT Quiet Trader freighter, which has been fairly successful because of its low external noise footprint, and the -200QC Quick Change passenger or freight convertible. The 146-300 is a further stretched derivative of the original short fuselage Bae-146-100, but unlike the midsize 200 series, was not developed until later in the 1980s. The first 146-300, an aerodynamic prototype based on the original prototype 146-100, flew for the first time on May 1, 1987 with the certification granted in September 1987. Like the 146-200 a freighter version of the 300 series is known as the 146-300QT quiet Trader. The prototype -300 was converted to the 146-301ARA configuration, an atmospheric research aircraft operated by the Facility for Airborne Atmospheric Measurements as a replacement for the previously operated Hercules W2. The last of the original 146s were built in 1993, with the series succeeded by the Avro 146-RJ family.A total of 50 Bae146-200s remain in the fleet as of July 2016 with no aircraft on order.The British Aerospace Bae146-200 aircraft in question, serial number E2106, was first delivered to Air Nova in December of 1988.
