  • The project whose survival depended on this lobbying was then known as the Hawker Siddeley 146 (not 147!). The lobbying was successful in that just enough funding was made available to keep the project alive. When Labour nationalised the British aircraft industry, the project was given a full go-ahead as the BAe 146.
