VS G-VFAB Goes To Manchester For Re-paint

Mon Oct 15, 2012 8:33 pm

Just noticed on VS Source that G-VFAB has positioned to Manchester Air Livery for re-paint.....

http://www.thevssource.com/virgin-at...-positions-for-manchester-repaint/

Does anyone know if they are going to keep the tail livery, but update the titles and metallic paint etc... or are they going to put her in new livery as with the other updated aircraft ?

Also, what name will she have.... 'Lady Penelope' or 'Birthday Girl' ?

GOD I hope so. It's one of the most original paintschemes in the world and really emphasizes VS' whole thing with the ladies on the front of the plane, as well as in their commercials. It's kinda their thing...

I don't believe it's being repainted, just having some remedial work done.

It's only there for a few days-not long enough for a full repaint.
So long 701, it was nice knowing you.

I hope so.... the current scheme would look fantastic with a refreshed metallic paint and new purple billboard titles, but at the same time keeping the current style of Scarlet Lady Tail Livery.

Saw G-VFAB today. No changes to the paint scheme, the tail and rear section has had a respray but the livery is unchanged
