On 15 February, a Virgin Atlantic Boeing 747-400 (G-VAST) was about to be catered for flight VS75 from Manchester, United Kingdom to Orlando, United States. As one of the aircraft’s doors wasn’t properly disarmed (or possibly a malfunction of the door’s slide system), the emergency slide was activated.
The aircraft finally departed to Orlando with a delay of 6 hours and 16 minutes.
