G-VROS At LGW/EWR 1st May 2001

Wed May 02, 2001 5:42 pm


Did anyone brave the rain on the 1st May at 1pmish at Gatwick and get a photo of Virgin's new B747-400 G-VROS departing on it's maiden revenue flight?

Or did anyone get a photo of her arriving (4pmish local) or departing (7pm) Newark, same day but much, much sunnier!

Or (finally), any photos of her returning to Gatwick at 6:45am on 2nd May (bit of a long shot!)

Thanks for the offer, but I already have photos of her arriving at LGW on 28-04-01 from Boeing (again, in the rain!). I was after those particular flights as I happened to be onboard her.

If you happen to get any good photos in sunshine, I wouldn't mind a look.

Thanks again,
