The Virgin Jumbo involved was not G-VIBE, there are not 742's based at KK anymore Bright-Ling, all the based a/c are now the 747-443's and it would have been a member of that fleet that was involved, can't tell you which one inparticular though, sorry! <img src="cool.gif" border="0">

Incidentally, the Skippers PA on this particular flight was noted as being just right by my Missus (who was operating on board as crew). In her opinion it set the tone for a very successful and 'well mannered' diversion.

Bravo boss!

G-VIBE was parked outside the Midland hangar where Virgin do there maintenance. It was having a number 2 engine change due to some damage on the reverser.
