Comment / Contrary to popular belief, the prototype for the Avro RJX program was not G-IRJX - it was actually an RJX85, registered G-ORJX, which took to the air for the first time on 28th April 2001. Nor was G-IRJX the last British airliner built. A second RJX100 went on to join the ill-fated test program on 9th January 2002, registered G-6-391, although the very last airliner to roll off the Woodford production line was actually RJ85 G-CMBH (now OH-SAP) which flew the type's 'last' first flight on 26th April 2002.
