CORRECTION! We have since discovered that VH-YID has now taken up the name 'Maroubra Beach'.
VH-YID has previously operated on Virgin's overseas sectors and wore colours and titles of Virgin Samoa - which was preceded by Polynesian Blue - for operations also into Western Samoa and other Pacific Islands. It also wore the name 'Tapu'itea'.
Also on Thursday 21 December, Qantas Airways Boeing B737-800 VH-VXQ 'Retro Roo II' visited Hamilton Island Airport operating the scheduled QFA866/867 service from and back to Sydney.
