Don't you get it? He just zoomed in really closely into the fuselage. The white fuselage has just turned greyish because, well, it's French.... and it is over 2 months old. What did you expect? A nice shiney plane? Let's all stay serious heh?

All was going rosy when heavy fog hit BRS and lots of flights were diveted to CWL & EXT. Only problem was, the fog then spread to CWL and EXT so the flights bound for all 3 airports had nowhere to land! I don't know where they all went.

Yes, it was. With yesterday's fog you wouldn't have been able to see a thing. :)
