Remark Photographer
G-VXLG (cn 29406/1177) "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!

Stunning close-up. The B747 looks very impressive seen from this angle. Great job Randall, congratulations.

This new paint scheme is absolutely breathtaking. What an exquisite metallic red....

A visitor from Poland posted Mon January 17, 2011:
Every time I'm looking at one of your photos, I just feel the need to see this one once again. It's simply mesmerizing! :)

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon December 27, 2010:
5 star with no doupt for the photo.amazing,of an a very pretty airplane. A380 can not compare with this beauty.the livery ,ican say that i like it,esspecially this red but still i prefer the lettertype of the older one.was in opinion more easy readable,esspecially from short distance.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun December 19, 2010:
This is an amazing photo! At first I hated these colours but they have really grown on me! I have actually flown on this plane, VS028 Orlando-Gatwick. 5*!

A visitor from Netherlands posted Wed November 10, 2010:
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.

A visitor from Chile posted Tue November 9, 2010:
I ccould be watching this pic for hours.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue November 9, 2010:
Why do people dislike this livery? It's much better than the previous one. Nice photo.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue November 9, 2010:
Ive got to admit, the first photo i saw of this scheme i thought WHAT HAVE YOU DONE!!!!??? but when a couple of days later it rolled into LHR, I was very impressed.This shot captures it very well indeed.just how clean it is & how deep the red is. v good!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon November 8, 2010:
My best DVD film star aircraft from ITVV! thanks C.Arda

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon November 8, 2010:
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.
