Farewell, Princess! (21.1 Open Beta)

Farewell, Princess!

With buildings in EGLL and the A346 getting a texture rework, today I decided to re-enact the last delivery of Virgin Atlantic’s A346. Virgin Atlantic confirmed the retirement of its final Airbus A340s in March 2020.

Flight Details
  • Virgin Atlantic Airbus A340-600
  • Flight AIB1191
  • Toulouse Blagnac (LFBO) - London Heathrow (EGLL)
  • Flight Time: 1hr 24m

The sky looks so beautiful.

Blasting off from Toulouse!

Moonshot as we ascend!

That is what the airport firefighters use for training. As you can see in the image there are some fire trucks around it.

The reason you get that impression is because they have to be able to train to put out an upper engine like that so they have a simulated tail engine on them. From what I have seen they all look more or less like this.


Thanks again for viewing guys! This was my first proper S&V topic and I can’t wait to post on this category more.

Sad to see her go… great shots!
