If youíre going to scrap an aircraft, the first thing to go is the engines...
Look, yeah, my first thought was why are engines - or at the very least the props, still attached.

My fault for naively believing posts on FB .. would have thought, though, being in the tropics, that they'd cover it.

VPI was deleted from reg on 04/06.

I expect she will join her sister (VPJ) on 2-Reg before joining Emerald.

Note: The company behind Emerald have purchased the ex-FlyBe maintenance facility at Exeter.

Both VH-YFE 26/5/21 and VH-YFJ 8/6/21 have now had test flights from WTB. They will probably go for maintenance once VH-YFH returns from CRK. All three are returning to the Virgin fleet as part of the second wave of leases (post #415).

According to Flightaware VH-YFJ is departing WTB for CNS at 11:00 this morning. Possibly going further afield for maintenance prior to re-entering service but not entered on the system as yet.

VH-YFJ is now on its way to CNS. It looks as though it will overnight there and continue to CRK tomorrow with the crew then bringing VH-YFH home to BNE. YFH also overnighted in CNS on its way to CRK for maintenance in May. With VH-VUY heading to HKG tomorrow, I feel that YFJ will have its maintenance in CRK.
