Noted at Rockhampton Airport on Wednesday 23 December was Virgin Blue's latest Boeing B737-800 VH-VUY.
The brand new aircraft was only delivered to Virgin Blue the previous week.
It is believed that Wednesday's service - DJ1251/DJ1252 - Brisbane to Rockhampton to Brisbane - was the first revenue service for this aircraft.
It has also been noted that this aircraft has no livery applied to it and is currently all white. There is speculation that this aircraft could have a special livery applied in the new year, or possibly even a new Virgin Blue or Virgin Australia livery could be applied.
