Domestic Pier under construction at Terminal 1 – Perth Airport – Fri 24 May 2013
This Pier will become home to Virgin Australia in mid-2014, when they move across from their current base at Terminal 3.
The Domestic Pier is 200 metres long, and has been designed to cater for Virgin’s A330 aircraft. It features 12 new aerobridge gates, and will be connected to the recently opened Terminal 2 via a covered walkway for transiting passengers.
Passengers will enter the pier via a 50-metre link serviced by dual travelators, leading to a spacious departures area with sweeping views across the airport – hopefully allowing better photography.

Arriving from Fortescue Dave Forrest Airport (Cloudbreak iron ore mine) on a FIFO flight at 09:34, on final approach to runway 03.
This aircraft has had a couple of incidents. On 3 Oct 2001, when it was owned by American Airlines, the nosewheel collapsed whilst it was being towed to the gate at Dallas (Fort Worth).
On 19 Oct 2012, less than a month after being delivered to Network Aviation, it was damaged in a heavy landing at Nifty mine – this was attributed to wind shear on approach to landing.
The fuselage was buckled in the landing and some temporary on-site repairs were undertaken. On 15 December 2012, it was flown Nifty – Port Hedland – Seletar (Singapore) for repairs by Fokker Services. On completion of more permanent repairs, it was flown back on 6 April 2013 from Seletar – Port Hedland – Perth, and re-entered service on 11 April 2013.

Ex 00-0203, ex N173UK, delivered to Brize Norton on 4 Aug 2001.
Rare visitor, parked at Bay 60.
This aircraft arrived at 20:52 on Tue 21 May 2013 from Diego Garcia, using callsign “Ascot 6660” – the first time it had visited Perth (see photo taken on 23 May by Wilson below)
It departed Perth at 09:51hrs on 23 May 2013 to Woomera, South Australia, as “Ascot 6660”, and returned to Perth the same day at 17:27 as “Ascot 6661”.
It eventually departed Perth on Mon 27 May 2013, taking off from runway 03 at 08:50 as “Ascot 6661”.
It is thought that this visit to Woomera is connected with test flights of the UK-built BAE Systems Taranis supersonic UAV: http://www.news.com.au/technology/sci-tech/baes-superdrone-taranis-to-be-tested-at-woomera/story-fn5fsgyc-1226619892302

VH-YUD Airbus A320-232 (cn 1922) of Virgin Australia Regional Airlines (formerly Skywest Airlines)(leased from BOC Aviation) at Perth – Tue 7 May 2013
First flown at Toulouse as F-WWBK on 19 December 2002. Registered as G-MEDH on 6 March 2003 to British Mediterranean Airways (leased from Singapore Aircraft Leasing Enterprise – later renamed BOC Aviation). British Mediterranean operated scheduled services as a British Airways franchise to countries in Africa, the Middle East, and Central Asia from London Heathrow, with aircraft painted in British Airways colours. G-MEDH was delivered to British Mediterranean on 7 March 2003, and operated its first revenue service on 12 March 2003.
In February 2007, British Mediterranean was purchased by BMI (British Midland International). G-MEDH was repainted into a hybrid livery with BMI (British Midland) tail colours on 21 September 2007, and operated its first BMI revenue service on 28 October 2007. It was repainted in full BMI colours in late December 2010.
BMI was then taken over by British Airways in 2012, and G-MEDH operated its final BMI revenue service on 21 November 2012. Operated its first British Airways revenue service on 25 November 2012, but operated its final revenue service with BA on 26 January 2013.
The aircraft was in Shannon for repainting in all-white colours during 8-16 March 2013. On 12 April 2013, the aircraft was flown London Gatwick – Sofia in all-white livery to be prepared for its lease to Skywest Airlines.
The registration G-MEDH was cancelled from the British Aircraft Register on 18 April 2013, and the next day, it was registered as VH-YUD to Skywest Airlines (leased from BOC Aviation).
On 24-25 April 2013, VH-YUD was ferried Sofia – Muscat – Seletar for repainting into Virgin Australia livery, and was named “Port Beach”.
On 7 May 2013, Skywest Airlines was officially renamed Virgin Australia Regional Airlines following a takeover, and the same morning, VH-YUD was ferried Singapore (Seletar) – Perth in full Virgin Australia livery, and was present at Perth Airport during the official launch of Virgin Australia Regional Airlines by Sir Richard Branson and Virgin Australia CEO John Borghetti.

Parked at Bay 60 near the International Terminal, preparing to depart.
The aircraft arrived the previous evening as flight VI 4753, arriving from Karratha. It had started its journey at Khabarovsk (in the far east of Russia, near the Chinese border), travelling via the Pacific island of Guam to Cairns and then Karratha as VI4752, before departing Karratha as VI4753 to Perth. It departed at 10:39 on the day of this photo as flight VI4753 to Male (Maldives).
The Il-76TD-90VD was developed specially for Volga-Dnepr cargo company, and is derived from the earlier Il-76TD, but fitted with Aviadvigatel PS-90 engines and a partial glass cockpit. Compared to the Il-76TD, this -90VD version is fully compliant with ICAO Chapter 4 noise standards (the old version was only Chapter 2 compliant), has longer range (of 4600km versus 3,800km), better fuel consumption and airfield performance, and over 60% more reliable. Volga-Dnepr has four of these in their fleet, together with a number of larger Antonov An-124 aircraft.
RA-76503 was originally rolled out of the factory in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, wearing primer and partial registration “76503” on 30 September 2011, and made its first flight on 15 October 2011. It was painted as RA-76503 in Volga-Dnepr Airlines colours by 23 November 2011.

** FIRST VISIT TO PERTH **
Taking off from runway 03 at 10:39 as flight VI4753 to Male (Maldives).
The aircraft arrived the previous evening as flight VI 4753, arriving from Karratha. It had started its journey at Khabarovsk (in the far east of Russia, near the Chinese border), travelling via the Pacific island of Guam to Cairns and then Karratha as VI4752, before departing Karratha as VI4753 to Perth.
The Il-76TD-90VD was developed specially for Volga-Dnepr cargo company, and is derived from the earlier Il-76TD, but fitted with Aviadvigatel PS-90 engines and a partial glass cockpit. Compared to the Il-76TD, this -90VD version is fully compliant with ICAO Chapter 4 noise standards (the old version was only Chapter 2 compliant), has longer range (of 4600km versus 3,800km), better fuel consumption and airfield performance, and over 60% more reliable. Volga-Dnepr has four of these in their fleet, together with a number of larger Antonov An-124 aircraft.
RA-76503 was originally rolled out of the factory in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, wearing primer and partial registration “76503” on 30 September 2011, and made its first flight on 15 October 2011. It was painted as RA-76503 in Volga-Dnepr Airlines colours by 23 November 2011.

This aircraft was flown from Perth via Alice Springs to Townsville on 25 February 2013 and was repainted all-white with no titles, but still had the rudder painted in Skywest colours. The takeover of Skywest by Virgin Australia was still awaiting some regulatory approvals, so it could not be painted in Virgin Australia colours at that time. VH-FNA returned to Perth on 11 March 2013, and re-entered service. On 20 April 2013, it was again flown Perth-Alice Springs-Townsville and became the first Skywest Fokker 50 to be painted in Virgin Australia colours. It returned to Perth via Alice Springs on 26 April 2013, and now wears the name "Rockingham Beach" (it previously wore the name "City of Albany" when in Skywest colours).  Photo © Keith Anderson

    The photo of VH-FSQ (VA/XR F100) is simply superb.

    OMG, I am a huge fan of airlines in Australia and so jealous so the range of regional carriers seen in your photos. My eyes fired up of jealousy seeing a Fokker 100 and 50 in VA colours, something I wont see in Melbourne >:( I was in Darwin over the last week on a family holiday during my school holidays and thought I got some pretty good photos you wouldn’t see in Melb. I saw a QLink Boeing 717 (Cobham) which I have been dying to see but got a grainy close up because I was in a A320 bound for Melbourne and it was 7:00 in the morning!. Also I got pics of the Air North 170 and 120 Brasilia, VH-NLK which you have in your photos but it was unregistered. I saw a Alliance F-70 and a range of aircraft from Vincent Aviation. I was also lucky to see a B-17 Globemaster land and shortly dissappear into the RAAF base. But when I scrolled through your photos, I’m like to myself “I need to get to Perth Airport”, as my favorite type of aircraft with two rear fuselage engines especially the 717, the F-100 and F-70 I know are going to be there. I also wanted to photograph Skipper Aviation, Network, Skywest and VA Regional, more Alliance aircraft. Not to mention Qatar and Singapore Cargo.

    The Volga-Dnepr IL-76, I have a 1:200 scale model I bought with my own money! Nice aircraft1
