Now I like Virgin Atlantic and have read a little bit about them, so I'm confused. I know they started in 1984 with a 747. I also know that Richard Branson once chartered a plane when he was left stranded on an island with other tourists, and jokingly told the pax the flight was operated by "Virgin Airlines". And then there was that weird period of Vickers Viscounts flying around.
But where does this 727 fit into the scheme of things? And Faro? They had A320s and A321s for Athens, they leased 767s and other aircraft, but never heard of the 727 before. Was this a Virgin Atlantic leased plane, or perhaps a predecessor of Virgin Sun? Or perhaps just an advertisement plane (Like the Ryanair Vodafone livery)?
Can anyone provide any more info about this plane, its livery, and its role?
