Default Pics: "Barbarella"

Definitely not Jane Fonda! This is another reacquisition. I owned this model back in 2009. Despite the small inaccuracy, I'm happy to have it because it's a livery & a registration number I don't have in my collection. So here she is again! I'm curious why Virgin came up with the name "Barbarella."

Aircraft and model details:
Boeing 747-443; G-VROM "Barbarella"
Virgin Atlantic Airways
Serial No. 32339; Line No. 1275
First flight 8th May 2001
Delivered to Virgin 29th May 2001
Configuration 14 Upper Class, 58 Premium Economy, and 379 Economy class seats
Aviation200 AV2744001, produced 2009
Special Notes: 13th and final 747-400 delivered to Virgin

There are 2 more Virgins I need to find!

I'm at the end of my 1:200 shopping spree. I have a want list of models but they're older releases. Difficult to find and expensive when they become available.

Thanks.

I only have one KLM model now, though I'm thinking about adding a DC-9 or 737. I've been a huge fan of Virgin Atlantic (and Virgin America) for quite a while. Even more now that I've flown them a few times.

Landing planes (EBBR) pass by at eye level 200 metres away from me when I look out
from my desk in my home. Every time a Virgin Atlantic passes by (usually A350 or B787)
I can't help but think of you Randy. ;-)

That's so cool!! Yeah, the aircraft I've flown on Virgin have been 787s and an A350. (Still hoping for a model of the A350 I flew on. It was produced in 1:400 scale.) I live right under the landing path here in Palm Pings but I see mostly Southwest, Delta, United, American, and Alaska.

Thanks for thinking of me when you see one of their beautiful planes!

Thanks! I had wanted to change it on here to "LikeaVirgin" (ha ha) but doing so would reset my site join date, which has alreaedy been reset once.

Thank ya! One of the things I enjoy about this particular livery is the Union Jack design on the winglets. Very cool.

Thank you. Unfortunately, I cannot avoid the reflection when taking photos of my models from that angle. I've deleted many photos I've taken (or have not posted them) because the reflection/glare obstructs details on the fuselage.

I may be moving soon, so my photos will look different because I won't have the grey background. (Unless I decide to move it with me!)
