The run of Virgin Australia Embraer E-190 jets into Gladstone Airport continued late on Sunday 23 November with VH-ZPN touching down at the industrial city operating a scheduled service from and back to Brisbane as VOZ1717/1720.
Local plane spotter Anthony S was on hand to capture the arrival and departure of the E-jet, and also to capture the arrival of another jet to frequently call into Gladstone in the form of QantasLink (Cohbam Aviation) Boeing B717-200 jet VH-NXH which he captured arriving also from Brisbane but as QJE1716.
VH-NXH only returned to service with QantasLink on Sunday after earlier positioning from Adelaide. Fellow B717 VH-NXD, which we posted visiting Gladstone yesterday, positioned from Brisbane to Adelaide earlier on Sunday, presumably for planned maintenance.
Thanks Anthony for allowing us to share these great photos!
