G-VSKY is a tough old bird, don't forget what happened to her, but she has seen better days.
LJ / Airchabum,
I saw the ACARS movement message for that AMS-NCL flt come thru on the telex printer, but just thought it was a spurious one so ignored it.
Got your e-mail now, sent a reply too.
Looking at that model, it's along the lines of the ones they sell in the staff shop, so I guess it will be putting in an apperance soon. When I was at BMI, all the staff got a model of the A332 when they launched it and the new colour scheme, we were told it was a limited release, but they have now made an apperance in the shops. I was speaking to the guy that owns that model shop in the Sheraton Skyline, and he said that VS won't give out a license to make models, thats why there are so few companies that produce them. He did say it was a real shame, as he said the poor quality plastic ones they do get go like hot cakes.
The shop on the roof of T2 is selling the VS 744/343 models for £40, that we get for a tenner in the staff shop. I think the guy in the shop must have a contact at VS thats making a nice little profit from them.
