Scanned from Fuji Sensia slide. Finals 08R.
Pictured in July 2004, which was then an example of a "classic" VS 747.
Former Air New Zealand and Malaysia bird....now retired by Virgin and soaking up the rays of California sun at MHV.
Seen in her operating days complete with Virgin's latest colourscheme, now sadly meeting her end in the desert boneyards of Mohave
Managed to just get this baby in front on. G-VIBE is one of the 3 Virgin Classics currently at MHV.
Spirit Of New York, now stored in the boneyard.
I don't think it's gunna be too long before G-VSSS and G-VBEE (last remaining VS 742's) will bite the dust and join this one in the hot heat at MHV.
"BRITAIN'S FLAG CARRIER" stored at Mojave.
Sitting alongside redundant friends from Hawaiian and Air Canada
Arriving on 27R in the fog
Final approach 27R.
