News from Virgin Internal communications today:-
As of May 2005 all of the Virgin Classic Birds (including the three stored at Mojave Dessert) will be sold to Transaero - A Russian airline.
The last 747-200 flight with Virgin colours will be from MCO
at the end of April and will be the VS076.
Then all five of the Virgin classics will be going to Russia. One is currently being repainted in the BA
workshop at LGW
It's good to know the classics will continue to fly and the three in storage in the dessert will be coming back into service !
