Virgin Australia Regional F28-0100 VH-FSQ arrived from Derby, RAAF Curtin Base at 15.50hrs. After a short stop it departed to Melbourne at 16.30hrs.

This was the 1st visit of VH-FSQ to Adelaide, as well as the 1st visit of a Virgin Australia painted Fokker 100 to Adelaide. In 2013 Virgin Australia took over Western Australia regional carrier Skywest. At this stage only 1x A320, F100 and 2x F50's are painted up in Virgin Australia livery. Over time the rest of the Skywest aircraft will be re-painted.
