No bridge, but a plane
"No bridge, but a plane", lucky me, the background for a special routing!.
Service Flybe BE 1324 operated by G-FLBE
Scheduled: 09.45 // 10.45
Actual: 09.45 // 10.35
Interesting to know that this machine was originally with Olympic Air since 01.10.2009 and joined later the G-register with Flybe
Something interesting to know?:
And sure, the stats:
Leg no. 1446 at all and no. 57 on the Dash 8-400
Here we are with the airlines checked:

Out of the "London City Airport", after the latest schedule change short thereafter and for the
"Maes Awyr Caerdydd". It sounds somewhat Welsh to me!.
Well, there is originally a road connection above the Severn bridge but this one was closed due to renovation works. So Flybe decided, with some help from the local government, to establish a flight route during the closure. It looks like successful, the route remains also open when the bridge was open again.
Also interesting, but not really in a positive way, is that originally scheduled on this service was the VLM Fokker 50, but this one is history, airline and aircraft, so Flybe going for Self-Service on the Dash.
Also a couple of pictures are here:
