Yes it's good news to see these a/c flying again. I'm not sure if we (VS) will be involved in the delivery flight to the UK or if they become European's responsibility after the check, but I'll post an update if I hear anything.

Good 'old "sCAT" and "scUM"... as we called them here at Virgin. Hopefully they will work better for European than their record with VS!! Although the overtime pay was nice!! Good to keep 'em flying, though. Colors and reg. will change for both a/c.

I had to contact the VS hanger the other day and could not get an answer, so called the hanger foreman's mobile phone. I thought that the ring tone sounded weird and when the guy answered, he was out in the Mojave Desert sorting out those classics, he was no help to me that far away !!.
Had a nice chat for a couple of mins though.
