On Tuesday 14 January, Virgin Australia Boeing B737-800 VH-VOM touched down at Rocky wearing the old Virgin Blue livery along with a white nose cone. VH-VOM flew in from Brisbane as VOZ1245.
VH-VOM is current one of a few B737-800s in the Virgin fleet to wear the old red Virgin Blue colours with a white nose cone.
In fact, another Virgin B737-800 like this - VH-VUL - also touched down at Rockhampton this week operating as VOZ1243/1244 on Friday 17 January.
Later on Tuesday 14 January, Skytrans Airlines Dash-8-100 VH-QQD was spotted on the Northern end of the Rockhampton Airport apron after arriving from Moranbah as SKP717.
The Dash-8 was noted to take on fuel only, and later depart to Brisbane using the same flight number. This is one of a pair of Fly-in fly-out (FIFO) flights into Moranbah that Skytrans operates each week from Brisbane.
Incidentally, fellow Pilatus PC-12/47E - VH-YOJ - which is operated by Zauner Constructions in New South Wales, departed Rocky for Bendigo on Tuesday 14 January. It had arrived the previous week.
