Hard to believe it’s been two years since their first flight, but this past Saturday, America’s favorite Branson-owned airline celebrated its second birthday. From “Air Colbert” to the stars-and-stripes winglets, spotters have always enjoyed catching the various members of Virgin America’s fleet. Here is a birthday card, in the form of a dozen of our favorite Virgin America photos in no particular order, compiled from Flickr.
