Remarks: Flight VIR809P rotated very early under full power positioning to Manchester where she was re-painted into Virgin colours. Super Torisimo seen departing for the last time from runway 08R. Previously registered CP-2603, and a photographic highlight of the year for many of Gatwick's photographers.
Remarks: Seen climbing away from runway 08R after an intersection departure. Flight 'Mistral 902' rotated very early having spent time with British Airways maintainence, this departure presumably an empty positioning flight.
