On Saturday 25 January, local plane spotter 'IAD' ventured to Rockhampton Airport to capture some images of one of Virgin Australia's more unique Boeing B737-800 aircraft in the form of VH-BZG.
VH-BZG is a rather unique aircraft and registration in the Virgin Australia (and previously Virgin Blue) fleet. It was originally intended to be registered as 'VH-VUW', however at the announcement of the retirement of the original Virgin CEO Brett Godfrey, it took up the registration of VH-BZG (Brett [&] Zahra Godfrey) in honour of the retiring Virgin CEO and his wife. VH-BZG also wears the name "Brett's Jet" in honour of Godfrey.
On this occasion, VH-BZG was noted operating the scheduled VOZ1245/1248 service from and back to Brisbane.
Meanwhile, back on Monday 20 January, Virgin Australia Boeing B737-800 VH-VOM popped into Rockhampton again, still wearing its white nose!
Thanks to 'IAD' for capturing these great photos of some great aircraft to pop into the beef capital.
