Wasn't the BAC QSTOL simply the first stage of what ultimately became the British Aerospace BAe 146?

No, the BAe 146 derived from the Hawker Siddley side of the merger, more specifically De Havilland.

Probably COMPLETELY WRONG, but I thought the 146 originated in the Avro division!!???

Nope.. De Havilland I'm afraid... 146 is in the same Hatfield design number series as the 125, 121 (Trident), 106 (Comet).. Avro Numbers start at 500... and continued into the HS era with 801 (Nimrod) and BAe era with 858 (aka ATP)

Sorry should have added that it did kind of end up an Avro by default... when the second production line was set up at Woodford... and the revised version was rebranded as the Avro RJ...

Probably because they didn't own the de Havilland name. Which is now for sale over at Bombardier...

I believe it was discussed... I remember someone from BAe at the time saying it would have been too confusing having two deHavilland on the market...

As for the name being up for sale, Viking would be daft if they didn't buy it...
