Wednesday Afternoon at Gladstone Airport - Virgin Australia B737-800 VH-VUY & Alliance Airlines Fokker F-100 VH-XWT

A very busy Wednesday 2 April at Gladstone Airport was highlighted by the arrival of a nice pair of jets into the industrial city in the form of Virgin Australia Boeing B737-800 VH-VUY and Alliance Airlines Fokker F-100 VH-XWT.

VH-VUY was first to touch down, operating a scheduled service into Gladstone from Brisbane as VOZ1715.

It departed soon after returning to Brisbane as VOZ1720.

Then Alliance Airlines Fokker F-100 VH-XWT made a welcome arrival into Gladstone, touching down as UTY650.

The Fokker was believed to be operating the regular 9-day Fly-in Fly-out (FIFO) charter flight from Brisbane which is usually operated by Our Airline.

As shown above, VH-XWT stayed for the night, and then departed early on Thursday 3 April as UTY651 returning to Brisbane.

It it expected that the visit of the Alliance Fokker was a one-off.

Sincere thanks to local plane spotters Jamie and Tash for capturing these great photos!
