VH-VQW was operating as JST959 from Cairns to Sydney when smoke and fumes were reported in the cockpit near Rolleston. The aircraft immediately diverted to Rocky, where the A320 landed safely with all emergency services on stand-by.
The passengers were being bussed to motels for the night, while VH-VQW remained parked on the Northern end of the Rockhampton Airport parking apron.
