I've heard news, that the Defense Research Agency BAC 1-11 XX105 will be 'retired' soon. A ceremony is scheduled at Bournemouth this weekend. Does anybody know if thats true and what will happen to the aircraft (sale/museum?)? Regards Blackbird1

I don't know specifically about 105, but we've just completed an annual inspection on ZE433 so there must still be a demand for them and I was at Boscombe down the other day and there were several 1-11s flying.
