It’s Sunday again, so it must be time for some more airplane art.
This week, we have a Virgin Atlantic Airbus A340-600 being prepared for its next flight at its home base of London Heathrow.
Sadly, for those who love the long four-engined Airbus A340-600, Virgin Atlantic has finally withdrawn the type after capacity drops meant the type was not required in service any more (G-VNAP flew the last A340-600 flight for the airline on the 8th March). The airline was the launch customer of the type.
G-VGAS itself has met its end, with the aircraft stored in May 2017 and meeting her end in September 2018 where it was dismantled.
The Virgin Atlantic fleet is currently made up Airbus A330-200, Airbus A330-300, Airbus A350-1000, Boeing 747-400 and Boeing 787-9.
More Airplane art next week!
