Virgin Australia's VH-ZPH

Virgin Australia is ferrying its last Embraer ERJ-190AR, VH-ZPH "Honeymoon Cove" (msn 19000199) from BNE to BNA (via APW, HNL, and VNY). It's flying as VOZ9901, and will stop off at HNL this afternoon. VH-ZPH was retired from service on the 3rd of this month.

VH-ZPH was originally delivered to Virgin Blue in August 2008, and was named "Hastings Highness". After the airline re-branded itself as Virgin Australia in 2011, this ERJ-190 was renamed "Honeymoon Cove".

The airline has retired its entire ERJ-190 fleet, and ferried them to Nashville, TN, for storage. Several have been acquired by Nordic Aviation Capital (NAC), and found new homes with other airlines.
