Where Is G-VBUS?

Sat Jul 15, 2006 11:56 pm

Hi there

I have not seen any photo's of this Virgin A343 on the internet since March 2006. Is it still in service? If not where is it?

Regards

Ok apologies everyone someone I know has just answered the question, but I still think its strange that there has been no photos of this bird on here or myaviation since March?

For information purposes, if anyone is interested, it has been dedicated operating the VK0292/0293 from London Gatwick to Lagos virtually everyday.

Probably the sheer number of images in the DB means the screeners are being really choosy and only the cream of images of this bird are getting in anymore?

Hey there,

This will answer your question directly, a list of what's been doing the Virgin Nigeria service this past week or so:

07/07- G-VSUN
08/07- G-VBUS
09/07- G-VSUN
10/07- G-VBUS
11/07- G-VBUS
12/07- G-VSUN
13/07- G-VSUN
14/07- G-VSUN
15/07- G-VSUN

As you can see they both operate it pretty randomly. Looks like BUS is in maintenence at the moment though,
