About a week and a half to two weeks ago this Virgin Blue 737,LN-TUG(soon to be VH-VBX), seen here in Norway, was sheduled to stop over at YEG in Canada on a cargo flight. Unfortunately, much to our disapointment here it never showed up. I was just wondering if anyone might possibly know anything about this particular aircraft and where it might be at this time? still in Norway or gone to Australia? And even better if you know anything about why it never showed that would very cool

Well it is no longer in Stavanger, Norway (SVG) where it was painted in Virgin Blue colors.

The last time I saw LN-TUG was July 18th, eight days after I took the picture. "Unfortunately" I went on vacation the day after, when I got back to Stavanger on the 28th LN-TUG/VH-VBX was gone.

A few weeks prior to it's scheduled departure (July 20th?), I was in contact with a Virgin Tech engineer who was gonna come to Stavanger and pick up the plane. I'm sure he is able to give you some details about the flight, and why it didn't stop at Edmonton. He actually told me that the planned route was: Seattle, Hawaii and Christchurch. Please let me know if you'd like his e-mail address.

I can see there are still no photos of VH-VBX in the base, when will the first appear?  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
