Virgin Atlantic G-VEIL "Queen of the Skies" (FLT VIR23) from London Heathrow on short-final to RWY 24R.
Landing on Runway 27L
Departing late evening from 27R
I think boeing may have an arguement against the naming of this aircraft the "Queen of the Skies". This Virgin heavy departing bound for Shanghai Canon 400D Canon 100-400L IS.
First shot of this A/C in the Database and what a powerful stance with the condensation over the wing!
Final approach to 27L.
Operating a hajj flight.
Catching a few rays of winter sun, just starting its long journey to Tokyo, Narita as VS900.
