Believe I say this take off myself. Was taking off empty on a positioning flight to LGW due to increased security delays cancelling passenger take offs. BAA limited passenger flights out.

Incredible, great shot well done. As ever, the Virgin A346 looking absolutely incredible, however I think the new livery looks even better

Probably one of the best shots i've ever seen! the striking colors and lack of clutter in the background set it apart. the picture gives the sense of energy needed to gain altitude. great perspective!

As the matter of paint scheme, those red engines in combination with grey fuselage are absolutely stunning! Although, plane looks so elegant with all that length. My favorite airliner!
