Some Plane Spotting Photos from Mackay Airport Last Week

Despite all of the action happening to North and South, there were still some interesting movements into Mackay Airport last week, and Townsville-based plane spotter, Dave, ventured to Sugar City for work and managed to find some time to take a few photos last Tuesday 9 July and Wednesday 10 July.

He took great delight in capturing (Tigerair) Tiger Airways Australia Airbus A320 VH-VND as it departed Mackay for Sydney as TGW386.

He also captured Jetstar Airways Airbus A320 VH-VGO as it departed to Brisbane as JST883.

And Virgin Australia Boeing B737-800 VH-YIQ as it departed to Brisbane as VOZ608.

And finally, Alliance Airlines Fokker F-100 VH-FKC, which was operating for QantasLink, was photographed also departing to Brisbane as UTY2515.

Dave returned to Mackay Airport on Wednesday and captured an old favourite yet again - he seems to always catch Virgin Australia B737-800 VH-VUW - still with its white nose!  It is pictured departing to Brisbane as VOZ604.

QantasLink (Cobham Aviation) Boeing B717-200 VH-NXO was also captured by Dave as it departed to Brisbane as QJE1761.

Jetstar A320 VH-VQD was captured moments from touch down on Mackay Airport's Runway 14 as JST882.

As was Virgin Australia's B737-800 VH-YFG which was arriving from Brisbane as VOZ605.

A rare movement for Mackay on Wednesday 10 July was Alliance Airlines Fokker F-70 VH-QQX which was operating a scheduled service for QantasLink as UTY2514.

On the lighter side at Mackay Airport on Wednesday 10 July, Dave captured Gladstone Helicopters / Helireef Eurocopter EC135 P2 VH-ZGZ. 

Also, a common visitor to Central Queensland in the form of the Queensland Police Service (Airwing) Raytheon B1900D VH-PSK.

Sincere thanks to Dave for allow me to share his fantastic photos with you all!
