Braved the chilly conditions on Wednesday, June 29 and ventured to Gladstone Airport to capture the early morning activity which included filming the landing, and eventual departure of Virgin Australia Boeing 737-800 VH-VUH. Two short video's can now be viewed at our associated Facebook page.
Among the activity was the departure of Virgin Australia ATR 72-500 VH-FVH to Brisbane as VA1708. The aircraft had arrived from Brisbane the previous evening.
Another early morning departure to Brisbane was QantasLink Bombardier Dash 8-Q400(NG) VH-LQL as QF2331. This aircraft had also arrived from Brisbane the previous evening.
Arguably the most notable movement was the arrival of Virgin Australia Boeing 737-800 VH-VUH from Brisbane as VA1707. Spending a little over an hour on the ground, VH-VUH eventually departed back to the state capital as VA1710.
Also arriving from Brisbane was QantasLink Bombardier Dash 8-Q400 VH-QOW and touched down at the port city QF2331. Later returned to Brisbane as QF2332.
