On Thursday 15 February, Virgin Australia's brand new and recently delivered Boeing B737-800 VH-YWE made its first visit into Central Queensland, operating in and out of Hervey Bay (Fraser Coast) Airport from and back to Sydney as VOZ1555/1556.
VH-YWE was delivered to Virgin Australia at Brisbane right at the end of January and was photographed by local plane spotter Dylan H as it sat in the Virgin hangar at Brisbane Airport during the 'farewell' party for the now retired Virgin Embraer jet fleet.
As shown, VH-YWE wears the name 'Dreamtime Beach'.
Of interest, VH-YWE is reportedly the final 'Next Generation' Boeing B737-800 due for delivery to Virgin Australia before the airline starts taking delivery of its first Boeing B737 MAX in 2019.
