Orio al Serio. Orio al Serio Airport celebrated the last flight of the aircraft BAe-146-100owned by F1 Management and used for the travel of the organizing staff of the Formula One Grand Prix held in Europe.

The aircraft, distinguished by the initials G-OFOM and last in service of the 33 produced by British Aerospace, began operating on February 27, 1990 and retires after more than 32 years of service. Flight Fo 1463B bound for London Biggin Hill airport took off at 12:45 pm with 20 passengers on board.

Upon departure, the aircraft was greeted by the water arch of the fire brigade of the Orio al Serio detachment.

The BAe 146 series 100, regional airliner also known as Jumbolino, equipped with 3171 kg thrust Honeywell ALF 502R-5 turbofan engines that guarantee a range of just over 2,000 km, has some peculiarities, such as the presence of a openable airbrake located in the tail cone, in the absence of the devices for reversing the thrust of the engines.

Starting from 2019, this aircraft made a stopover at Milan Bergamo airport on the occasion of the Italian F1 Grand Prix in Monza, using the sister handling service of Signature Flighrt Support Italy and BGY International Services of the SACBO group.
