Water, Water everywhere and......

Any Idea which aircraft type was involved? Was it one of Flybe's new electric jets?

EMB-145 on the ramp at Cardiff at lunchtime. It said "FLYBE" on the side but had a sad little patch of new paint where it once had the BA stripe on it.

the a/c took a 2 hour delay, we were told at CWL that the a/c had been over filled with fuel not water (i was a bit suprised with this) mind the containers filled with water cause of the bad weather is much more logical explination.

Nice to see the link with an aircraft we don't actually operate anymore.

What ever happened to the 4, 737 Pilots that were "Seconded" to Astraeus ?
Are they back on the 146 or did Astraeus make them an offer they couldn't refuse?
