Was wondering if any more of Virgin's 747-200s had been repainted in the new livery. I saw that Queen of the Supstream (V-SSS) had been done. If any of them have been done, do you know if any are flying into Orlando at all -- or will they be scheduled to fly there? Thanks for your info!

High as a Kite has also been painted. There are photos of newly painted 747-200s on this site.

when I was working at Air New Zealand engineering the first two aircraft were done in the old livery, but they were going to do the last three in the new livery. Don't know what happened though

Virgin Atlantic started flying in October 1984, from LGW to EWR, utilizing
a single one class B747-200, still in service and named Maiden Voyager.

This is accurate (I think)

Queen of the Supstream G-VSSS
High as a Kite G-VPUF
Dancing Queen G-VIBE

Sometimes I go about in pity for myself and all the while a great wind carries me across the sky.

No Virgin B747-200s have been repainted into the new livery, all the aircraft currently wearing the livery were delivered like that from their previous operators. Only B747-400s and A340s have actually so far been taken out of service and repainted. FlyVirgin744's list is accurate.
