Was at the airport earlier, there was a MYTA330, BMIbaby 737 and an ATR 42 on the apron. All were going to depart on time, but a lot of the arrival aircraft couldn't land due to the fog that had seemed to turn up at CWL, thus the diversions.

Chris

According to the METAR's at http://www.tmdg.co.uk/weather/ , visibility has been down as low as 200m, with fog at the airport. Presumably it has also affected BRS due to the proximity of the two.

I think it came in from MAN, was operating the weekly My Travel, CWL-SFB service.

MYT11 arrived from BHX (I believe it positioned up from LGW as MYT16P)

It's currently at 40000ft, just over two hours away from SFB.

It'll return to BHX via CWL as MYT12 later today
I don't like signatures...
