Should indeed be an Avro RJ.
Ron, the plane crashed was a Saab 2000 which is still my favorite regional aircraft.
BTW: Have fun in Berlin and don't hesitate do ask some questions if you need a little direction, some suggestions or whatever. Andreas is always happy to help, and sometimes I'm in the right mood to do so, too.

The aircraft that has crashed on the TXL-ZRH route was an Avro RJ100.
The Saab 2000 incident was a different one, flying from BSL to HAM. They got diverted and had to make an emergency landing in Werneuchen, near Berlin.

It is most of the time operated by an Avro85 or 100. But I've also operated the early morning flight (7h30 from ZRH) with the A320, as it was full. Less busy flights can be done by the Emb145.
Our few remaining Saab2000's are very rarely used on this route. They tend to operated shorter routes such as ZRH-MUC, STR, LUX, as well as most routes from BSL, and the ZRH-LUG leg.
