RE: Virgin A346 at Farnborough Brilliant aircraft and pictures!I've seen pictures of the cockpit which,as expected,looks very similar to that of the -300.The economy class looks very comfortable with PTVs and the first class cabin looks luxurious as would be expected of this new hi-tech machine.

RE: Virgin A346 at Farnborough I saw this beautiful aircraft yesterday on our local news as it flew extremely low over Farnborough. It was also quite funny because Richard Branson was at Farnoborugh for the official opening of the air show and was dancing to some music with this massive aircraft parked in the background!

RE: Virgin A346 at Farnborough looks terrific, and those Virgin colours are just as easy on the eye as the Airbus House colours. Can't wait to see one close up. Regards, Carl

RE: Virgin A346 at Farnborough >yup...verrrry long :D ..... this a/c is named after Claudia >Schiffer(spelling?).....now wont she be a happy girl. Yes, she's signed it. I saw an interview with Richard Branson in a hangar at LHR on the news yesterday... he was standing beside the nose. you couldn't even see the wings, they were so far away, in the shadows.

RE: Virgin A346 at Farnborough Great looking plane, saw it on Monday at EMA doing ciruits (see other post), stood at the end of the runway and it flew very, very low straight over the top of me. PS The aircraft made its first revenue flight today to JFK (VS009 1830). Apparently it will mainly be used on Hong Kong, Tokyo and JFK routes.
