Some of them came from Air New Zealand. Some are already there, 2 more to come. I can't remeber their regs, but if you look at Bob's home page and go to the notes on Air New Zealands 747-200's you will see it. It is really good to see a great airline like Virgin growing. Keep it going Sir Richard. You do a great job.

Virgin Atlantic has acquired 7 747-200s from two different airlines. 2 747-200s came from Cathay Pacific and are now registered G-VRUM and G-VCAT. 5 are to come from Air New Zealand three have already arrived. The 5 747-200s from Down Under will or are already registered G-VSSS, G-VBEE, G-VZZZ, G-VIBE and G-VPUF. Supposedly they are looking to acquire 2 more 747-200s. Possibly 2 that Qantas may be putting up 747-200s.
