Virgin Australia Boeing 777-300ER Diverts to Cairns

Early this morning, Virgin Australia Boeing 777-300ER VH-VPE operating VA8 from Los Angeles (KLAX) to Brisbane (YBBN) diverted to Cairns. It is unknown as to why the 777 diverted, however, it is likely due to bad weather in Brisbane.

About an hour later, it departed for Brisbane (YBBN) as VA8.

Only last month, this 777 returned to Australia from Singapore after being repainted into the new Virgin Australia livery. Below is a photo I took of it departing Sydney in December 2013:
In fact, I believe this was the very last Virgin Australia 777 to be repainted into the new Virgin Australia livery.
