Earlier today Virgin Atlantic unveiled its new livery, which, to the untrained eye, looks not a huge amount different to the old livery.
“The Virgin Atlantic name, previously on the front end of the fuselage is now emblazoned large across the whole of the aircraft in a fine custom drawn font. In addition, the undercarriage of the aircraft now features the new Virgin Atlantic logo in dark purple – making the aircraft more easily identifiable when taking off and landing. The winglets are now red with the Virgin script on the inner side, visible to passengers on board the plane. The iconic, flag carrying flying lady, who appears on all Virgin Atlantic aircraft, has been rejuvenated with a subtle cosmetic makeover and enhanced detailing – now fluttering a larger Union Jack.”
So now you know. Here’s the (corrected!!) old livery for comparison and another pic here – thanks to DC Spotter and Scoreboard for your feedback (see comments below).
