"Rosie Lee" - one of four A320 aircraft leased from Aer Lingus to provide Virgin's "Little Red" domestic service between Heathrow and Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Manchester. The service ended in 2015 mainly due to poor load factors which saw many flights operating virtually two-thirds empty.

A little bit of a poser this one. The aircraft belonged to Air UK Leisure and was leased to SEEA March 1993 to April 1994. I believe that SEEA was a Greek airline. I'm not sure what the Virgin connection was and can't find any explanation (so far). It's possible that SEEA was operating under the Virgin AOC, but I don't know.
