    Incorrect- There have been no commercial flights yet to St Helena because of the wind problem, Only test flights and some medical evacuations. Maybe this aircraft- also smaller - not larger than the planned 737 - but with 4 engines instead of 2, maybe better at handling the weather and landing further in or the other direction.

    Looks a bit like a BA 146 STOL

    Better make it a quick stop in Uruguay so as not to attract envious eyes by the Broad Fraud who are looking for a 'Presidential airplane' for Vasquez, our lying president.

    There's only 3,286,314 of us men, women and children (Census 2011), the vast majority of who have never been on a commercial plane and will never have the chance to do so.

    A sensible aircraft to try. One of Britain's best selling airliners(formerly the Bae 146). Ironically the launch customer was to be LADE, but Argies not too keen after the 82 war. But didn't stop it selling well. Recently purchased by the RAF for completing some transport operations in Afghanistan.
