Remarks: [1600px] This is the aircraft that operated the inaugural flight from Saarbrucken. Unfortunately, it wasn't supposed to be and replaced a Fokker 100 in Stuttgart that diverted there earlier en route to Southend. The return flight was cancelled. Canon 600D Canon 100-400L IS.
Remarks: The inaugural flight from Saarbrucken, well sort of. The original flight operated by a Fokker 100 developed a problem on departure from Germany, and diverted to Stuttgart. This rather smart Saab was sent as a replacement aircraft and arrived 6 hours late. This aircraft was painted at Southend in March this year.
