That is weid, ISP use to have a beat old Covair that they use to practice their emergency drills on. I guess the next best thing to a beat up old plane is a brand new plane. Was the drill at night or during the day? I can see an airline letting them use a plane at night since all ISP's evening arrivals overnight and the plane is just sitting there anyway, but during the day an ERJ is a pretty busy aircraft. Maybe ISP rented the plane from CO for the day.
