Tuesday 5 January 2010 - winter returns! - a busy day for diversions at Birmingham!!

Qatar Airways Airbus A330-302 A7-AEH was one of a number of
diversions due to snow in the North West when it arrived as the
"QR 045" from Doha to Manchester
Other diversions included Cyprus and Lufthansa A320's, several
Monarch aircraft and two First Choice/Thomson 763's
Regional Embraer 190-100STD F-HBLJ operated the morning
Air France service from Paris CDG in place of the usual CityJet AR8
- the first visit of a Regional E90 - it was caught at BHX when the
airfield was closed for snow clearance and finally departed at 1345
First Choice Boeing 767-324ER G-OOBL was operating flight
"TOM 159" from Goa to Manchester when it diverted in - its
second visit to BHX since having winglets fitted
A snowy view of Terminal 2 after the airfield was closed by
a morning snow shower....
.... well done to the Ops team for getting the airfield open again
- unfortunately it did not stop the snow returning in the evening!
