Indeed, she does look sorry parked out in the sticks with the impounding paperwork stuck to the windshield like a parking ticket.
I was told this morning that the aircraft was impounded by MAA PLC after the "Cease Operations" message was issued, as C3 owe "a substantial amount" in overdue landing fees at MAN.
Dr Ho, I may be wrong, but I believe that had court protection been actioned before the "Cease operations" instruction had been issued, then C3 may have been able to get all their chicks back to base.
If, however, C3 had no option but to cease ops. before filing for protection, then it suggests to me that their situation was more dire than anyone imagined.
So I drive a 4x4. So what?! Tax the a$$ off me for it...oh, you already have... :-(
