And making it a double for repainted B737-800s, touching down at Mackay Airport on Wednesday 18 June was recently re-painted Virgin Australia Boeing B737-800 VH-VUJ. It operated the late afternoon VOZ613/614 service from and back to Brisbane.
I managed to capture VH-VUJ in the 'Flying Colours' hangar at Townsville Airport last Saturday 14 June. VH-VUJ re-entered service on Sunday 15 June.
It is believed that fellow B737-800 VH-VUN has now flown into Townsville for re-painting. As shown in the photo below, VH-VUN is one of a handful of Virgin Blue / Virgin Australia aircraft to be painted in in a 'temporary' colour scheme with 'Airline of Virgin Blue' titles on the fuselage and 'Pacific Blue' titles on the tail.
