A changing week in Aviation

Well finally VH-FVH ATR 72 for Virgin landed at 1912 on Thursday the 18th August from Timor.
This is the first of 18 aircraft on order and the first 4 will be 500 series models and will be replaced by a 600 series mid 2012.
The new ATR will be deployed on BNE-GLT,BNE-PQQ,SYD-PQQ and SYD-CBR for the first 3 aircraft.Aircraft 4 due soon has no route utilization plans advised at this stage.
Today FVH departed BNE for the Bundaberg airshow to be on static display.
This aircraft will change Australian Aviation as there will be now competition in regional markets.
Well done Virgin and thank you for selecting BNE as your first hub port for this beautiful airliner.
