"Ruby Tuesday" finally repainted arrives 25L as VIR43 wearing the most recent of three active schemes in the Virgin Atlantic fleet. Despite the high level of criticism for this revision, I must admit this livery does indeed make a compelling case in person. I generally am not a fan of crops of this nature unless they are done well. With that said I am seeking to provide a close examination of the scheme in high resolution. 1400 Pixels Wide!

This shot really highlights the great effect of the red metalic paint. The font would have looked better if they had not extended it over the windows of the upper deck.

Great close-up shot, well cropped indeed, and yes... I already stated it on A.net.. This livery looks good. Period. In addition, I hated the previous "electric, 'hip' font" schemes of VA, tho I did like the tail of the latest c/s before this one, and lucklily they retained it (in principle (colour is more red-brown now, a bit deeper)). I'd sum up: the tacky has taken on style.
And haters, where are you now? That said, I prefer BA, which has class VA will never have IMO.
