The One-Eleven can follow its starting points back to the proposed Hunting H-107 plane aerial shuttle undertaking of 1956.

Extended advancement emulated, yet by 1961, when Hunting had been assimilated into British Aircraft Corporation (BAC), a bigger Rolls-Royce Spey turbofan fueled outline was concluded.

British United Airways put in a dispatch request for 10 of the new flies, then known as the BAC-111, in May 1961. The new air ship took to the skies shockingly on August 20 1963, while the first generation Series 200 first flew on December 19 1963. Accreditation was in the long run granted on April 6 1965, after an agitated flight test project, amid which one model smashed with the loss of its group, the reason credited to profound stall from the back motor and the T-tail design. With the profound stall issue determined, the BAC-111 entered administration on April 6 1965.

Improvement of the fundamental Series 200 prompted the higher weight Series 300, emulated by the Series 400 intended for American necessities with a higher US supplies content.

The Series 500 presented a 4.11m (13ft 6in) extended fuselage and protracted wings and more noteworthy seating limit for up to 119 travelers. It first flew (changed over from a -400) on June 30 1967. The Series 475 was upgraded for hot and high operations and joined the Series 500's all the more capable motors with the prior shorter length fuselage.

The last UK constructed One-Eleven (by now a British Aerospace item) flew in 1982, by which time creation was continuously being moved to Bucuresti in Romania where nine were fabricated as the Rombac 1-11.

In the mid 1990s Bucuresti was chipping away at a Rolls-Royce Tay 650 controlled improvement called the Airstar 2500. The Airstar was wanted to fly in late 1996 yet the project has been suspended.

In the USA, Dee Howard changed over two Srs 400 to Tay fueled Srs 2400.
