After sitting in storage for over two years, a Virgin-branded Boeing 777 has taken to the skies again, being ferried from Wellcamp to Brisbane.

In this episode of the Australian Aviation podcast, hosts Adam Thorn and Hannah Dowling are back in the studio to discuss the possible explanations behind this curious move.

Plus, the crew reveals the details of a new lawsuit taken against Virgin’s pre-administration management team by angry, “gypped” bondholders.

Finally, the team dives into international aviation’s recovery trajectory, and what to expect in the next edition of the Australian Aviation magazine.
