Today was a public holiday here in Australia, as most people celebrated Australia Day with family and friends myself and a few fellow spotters decided to go to the airport to photograph a movement we were not expecting to see as it was suppose to be heading to the other side of the country.  Pictured above is VH-YQA c/n: 190 of Strategic Airlines, this is the second Airbus 320 for this operator and will be based at Perth Airport (PER/YPPH) Western Australia to operate services between Perth (PER/YPPH) and Derby (DRB/YDBY).  This aircraft named "The Kimberley" is noted to have Strategic titles on the underbelly of the fuselage and Think, Be, Fly titles above the windows in the wing area.
