Also Spotted at Rockhampton Airport - Virgin B737-800 VH-VOL in New Colours & Alliance Fokker 100 VH-XWN

The recent military movements into Rockhampton Airport haven't been the only interesting visitors over recent days.  Touching down twice at Rockhampton Airport on Friday 29 August was Virgin Australia Boeing B737-800 VH-VOL which has recently been repainted into Virgin's new livery.

VH-VOL initially operated the morning VOZ1235/1238 service from and back to Brisbane, before returning later in the day operating the VOZ1243/1246 service also from and back to Brisbane.

VH-VOL has been noted wearing the new name of "Newport Beach".  It is believed that VH-BZG has now entered the paintshop in Townsville.

Meanwhile after the sun went down on Friday 29 August, Alliance Airlines Fokker F-100 VH-XWN also touched down at Rockhampton Airport.  It appeared to be operating a scheduled service on behalf Virgin Australia as it was noted operating the VOZ1249/1252 service from and back to Brisbane.

Alliance Airlines Fokker 100s have been noted operating at least one flight per day over recent days on behalf of Virgin including flights to Mackay, Townsville and Cairns.  As mentioned below, VH-XWS called into Rockhampton and Gladstone Airports on Tuesday 26 August, although this was believed to be a flight operated on behalf of QantasLink.
