It appears that the aircraft might now have ended up as an instructional airframe for future aircraft mechanics and spray painters. One of our roving correspondents managed to photograph the aircraft on the Medavia Technics ramp in October 2018 while operated by Blue Islands which had a franchise agreement with flybe until the latter collapsed.
