Virgin VIR9966 ..what Flight Is This?

Mon Oct 24, 2011 11:20 am

Just watching (Flightradar) and listening to this flight (G-VHOT) on liveatc.net crossing Ireland about to start its transatlantic crossing.
Anyone know its destination and what it is - some special charter ?
A quick check on flightaware using the same flight number shows a flight almost exactly 1 year ago between LHR -TPA...im guessing not a coincidence? !

Thanks

That would be the Buccaneers returning to Tampa after getting their asses kicked. And then almost un-kicked.
Why do Aerospace Engineering students have to turn things in on time?
