Virgin Atlantic's Tinker Belle arrived at DEN a little over an hour ago to pick up the Broncos. I was lucky enough to capture some pics when the aircraft touched down!

Love how the Broncos have air stairs with their name and Logos.

Nice shots. Tinker Bell looks fantastic with the Indian Peaks in the back ground.

Probably.

And look what happens when you give them the best deal.

Wish I had the time to make it down to DEN to see this bird when she was here. I wonder whether they put McDaniels in the hold with the rest of the junk they brought along or not.

Probably.


Thanks. when I first posted my reply I assumed that the Broncos were going to a US destination - so it didn't make sense that VS were doing it. No I hear they're playing in England so I guess it makes more sense for VS to be carrying them.

Except that one would assume that the charter costs would be cheaper from a US based airline as you wouldn't have to ferry an empty aircraft across the Atlantic for p/up


When in doubt, hold on to your altitude. No-one has ever collided with the sky.

You would have to ferry it back across after getting them across. One of the items up for debate here in Denver is why didn't the Broncos go earlier like the 49ers. There isn't an airline that would want a plane sitting somewhere a few days, let alone a week.

The 49ers only went early because the NFL scheduled an east coast road game right before London. If they would have had a home game like the Broncos, they would have left later.

Then the USA carrier would have to leave the 747 sitting in LON for the whole time.

They could probably add a repositioning flight into the schedule for two separate days if they had the slots theoretically.
