The fleet type would explain all the hops, now.... Why is a 146 coming to IND? No charter operator would go for that many hops, and the only other 146 operator is the US is Air Wisky @ MKE.

Hmm...

At a guess i would say that this aircraft is being flown to the US for storage as Aer Lingus hasnt recently retired all of its bae146 aircraft, which could explain this.
