i have noticed looking into photo's and seaches all the air new zealand 747-219 jets belonging to air new zealand were sold to virgin atlantic airways. They are now in storage at marina in virgin atlantic decals scheme's and some of these big birds have there names and rego's paintd over. they are the actual air new zealand 747-219 jets formerly from air new zealand not Qantas as all of the Qantas 747's were scrapped except one which is a meausem at long reach the former HOME OF Qantas these are 747-238 jets and not 747-19 jets. I hope this helps alot of people out with this matter. I worked for air new zealand from the days of the DC10-30 jets up until all the 747-219 jets were sold off to virgin atalantic. I do know them very well working over them while in maintance over hauls thank you
