Have you looked at the VS source website?

Always a good place to start on VS fleet and its movements

Another good place to look is Jethro's Fleets...

It would seem G-VLNM moved to Dresden in November. Unclear whether it's for maintenance or return to lessor like G-VMNK a while ago. As for G-VUFO, that's still showing as being at Ciudad Real. I know a couple of aircraft moved back to MAN from Ciudad Real in autumn, but UFO wasn't one of them.

Which is clearly not correct!

It is for maintenance. GEM and WAG will also depart Doncaster in the coming days. One of them will be positioning to Heathrow on Thursday.

G-VWAG has just entered the hangar at Heathrow for pre-service re-entry maintenance.

Is G-VMIK meant to be flying somewhere today as it’s just been moved to a passenger gate at terminal one?
#959342 by 747G-VXLG

G-VSXY and G-VWAG have been parked at terminal 3 at Heathrow so they may be returning to service today.

GVSXY Was over by T3 on Saturday.

I'm still not 100% clear why these are required to re-enter service this soon?

The longer an aircraft is in storage, the more it costs to bring it back into service. It's probably more cost efficient to bring some aircraft back into service & rotate the aircraft they use for cargo flights so the aircraft gets to fly on a fairly regular basis.

There appears to be nothing on MAN departure boards for VS today. Maybe it's being moved about or dragged to a gate for maintenance reasons?

G-VSXY returned to service today on the same VS505/506 Brussels rotation that sister aircraft VWAG made a couple of days ago.

G-VWND should be out for a spin today from Manchester.
Departs MAN at 1500 as VS832T.
Flight will last no more than 40 mins.

Looks like this may have been delayed or cancelled as it has still not left.
