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: Virgin 747s have not been seen in HKG for many years, so great to have it back. VS811P is arriving in Hong Kong from MAN for checks and an interior re-fit at HAECO.
This aircraft was previously leased to AeroSur, who have unfortunately ceased operations.
