Bae 146, ex G UKHP Involved in Incident at Tamale on Oct 6th 2015
Thank you to Alf van der Kwaak for sending through the following information.

As maintenance engineer I used to service the AirUK aircraft in the 90’s in AMS. Today I ran into an article on the internet, involving an ex AirUK BAe146-300 (G UKHP). Possibly this is of interest for the site. The article can be found at the following site; http://avherald.com/h?article=48d67340&opt=0

Thanks for the great site which has brought plenty of memories back!

Best regards, Alf van der Kwaak Airvo / FFV AvioComp AMS

Buzz unlike other low cost operators flew from London Stansted to the main city airports like Dusseldorf and Frankfurt, trying to attract the high yield business traffic. Despite contrary industry predictions KLMs no-frills venture proved successful with revenue up by 50% in the six months to September 2001, bucking the worldwide downturn following the US September 11 tragedy.
