Skywest (Australian) Airbus A320

Skywest was an Australian airline that was owned by Ansett Australia. It was bought by a private owner when Ansett collapsed and then bought again later by Virgin Blue (when they when they were changing their name to Virgin Australia in 2012/2013) and renamed Virgin Australia Regional.

The A320 below was purchased from Thomas Cook in 2010, repainted in the Skywest livery, shipped from Manchester to Melbourne and then flown to Perth to have its first commercial flight with Skywest. In 2012/2013 it was purchased by Virgin Blue and repainted again in the Virgin Australia (Regional) livery.
