A new Aeroflot Airbus 321 VP-BEE, named after Soviet nuclear physicist Yulii Khariton (Юлий Харитон), departs from Cambridge on October 12, 2016 at about 09:25 UTC. Ex Transaero EI-LED spent there the best part of the year along with the sister aircraft VP-BES (ex EI-SVX), while being repainted into the Aeroflot Skyteam livery and readied for the delivery. This first flight under the new registration was to Kaunas, Lithuania, where VP-BEE was reunited with VP-BES, ferried there via Norwich a few days earlier.
