Default VA / TT Fleet departures

Hi everyone.
Now that it is official the 777/A330 and Tiger A320 fleet will be leaving our shores, do we have any information on the expected months they will depart. Certainly a tough market for aircraft leasing companies to find new operators, perhaps short term storage maintenance will continue in Australia for a while, or put into deep storage. I noticed 777 VH-VPH undertook a 15 minute circuit out of Tulla as VA9909 on the 23rd August.
Cheers,

YFG/I/N/P/Q will be the 1st 737's to leave our shores in the very near future.

Interesting that the five are the younger sky interior aircraft. I'd imagine it is to do with leasing vs ownership etc.

I notice five of the older VA 738's (VOK VOO VUC VUE VUK) have returned to service, probably to replace the five mentioned YF* aircraft that were actually in operation and are now leaving the country.

Interestingly the ex-VA E190s that were deleted from the Aust. Reg in July have also joined the 2-REg.

I don't know what to make of the regn's with the 2 and the way they are retaining the remaining letters in the regn's.

So I am now wondering if YFG, I, N, P, Q will end up with Rex.

And according to the CASA website, the Registration Holder for each of the 5 B737s to be withdrawn is the Wilmington Trust Company of Wilmington, Delawere, U S A.
