The UK’s BAE Systems has scrapped the RJX regional jet program and will shut down all future RJ production after it finishes four airplanes currently in production. BAE said the company had orders for only 14 RJXs and that an already poor market exacerbated by the events of September 11 would mean losing money on every RJ sold. The company emphasized it will continue to provide support for all customer BAE RJs.
