They will be gaining another one soon and its one of their old ones. TF-ATW ex G-VSSS is being prepared to go back in to service but operated by Air Atlanta in a similar arrangment to the lease of TF-ABA during 2001

It is notionally a seasonal route but the actual duration of the service varies i.e. it was all year (VS A340s in summer, Martinair 767 in winter) in 1996 but generally operates May to November (as it will this year).
Alex, I'm looking to upload up to the 1st to 18th February tonight to my website (http://fly.to/northwest-spotters). Note that the early part of the month is already up but I have to pare off against a new log for the month. I take it some other sites just offer the normal scheduled service and the odd foreign charter?
One subcharter for yesterday was G-MIDC operating the AIH 206 yesterday.

Thanks for the original information on VS's 747-200s Jetstreamer. It will definately be a sad day when the last one leaves the fleet. Guess I have to get used to the new generation of all 747-400s. Their great, but the older 747 "Classics" had so much history.
P.S. Personally I still miss G-VMIA.

Just about the Virgin 747 classics. Yesterday the G-VPUF landed at Amsterdam. I was realy suprised to see a Virgin 747 at AMS. But It went directly the KLM Hangar. What is he doing out there??? It is already in the new color sheme right? Or will it be retired?? (is end of March now!)
