Rockhampton Airport Spottings on Friday and Saturday

Some interesting aircraft have popped into Rockhampton Airport over the last couple of days.

On Friday 13 April, Our Airline (Air Nauru) Boeing B737-3Y0 VH-INU arrived from Darwin as RON901, before departing to Brisbane as RON921. I managed a shot of VH-INU at Brisbane Airport before I flew to Emerald - it was certainly a surprise to see it parked at the Brisbane Domestic Terminal!

Meanwhile, on Saturday 14 April, Alliance Airlines Fokker F-70 VH-QQY made its first visit to Rockhampton, operating a charter flight from and back to Cairns. Unfortunately for local spotters who missed its arrival, it parked behind the JetGo E-135 VH-JTG (which is still there!) and so photos were a little hard to come by!

Lastly, QantasLink (Cobham Aviation) have swapped Boeing B717-200 aircraft that are used on Central Queensland services. VH-NXN operated its final flight to the region on Friday 13 April when it flew in and out of Rockhampton (file picture below).

On Saturday 14 April, the 'new' B717-200, VH-NXQ, operated its first service to the Central Queensland region when it flew in and out of Rockhampton.
