G-VROY final departure from Manchester Airport



Today was the final departure of the Virgin Atlantic Boeing 747-400 G-VROY from Manchester Airport. It’s journey was to go on to storage at Ciudad Real airport in Spain. These are a selection of my photos from the day.

There is nothing quite like the 747’s sound when it is on the take-off roll, a sound that will be sadly missed at Manchester Airport
