It’s Sunday again, so it must be time for some more Airplane Art.
This week, we have a Virgin Atlantic Airbus A330-300 on final approach to London Heathrow, as it prepares to cross the threshold to the runway.
Virgin Atlantic operates a fleet of 10 Airbus A330-300s in its fleet. They support the airlines’ operations along with the Airbus A330-900neo, Airbus A350-1000 and Boeing 787-9.
The Airbus A330-300s are in line for replacement over time, as further Airbus A330-900neo aircraft are delivered to the airline.
This aircraft – G-VKSS – is known as Mademoiselle Rouge. It joined the Virgin Atlantic fleet in February 2011. It has remained in the fleet since then – except for a period when it was parked between May 2020 and July 2021.
It has been flying recently- although appears to be parked at the moment, with the aircraft’s last movements basing it out of Heathrow and Manchester airports, operating to Bridgetown, Orlando and Antiga.
More Airplane Art next week!
