It is expected that VH-ESZ will undergo planned maintenance. Sister-ship VH-EZJ ferried North via Gladstone and Mackay over the weekend - http://cqplanespotting.blogspot.com.au/2014/11/virgin-australia-e-190-jet-vh-zpi-at.html.
Meanwhile, another interesting visitor to Gladstone Airport on Tuesday 4 November was Toowoomba-based Hawker Beechcraft G58 Baron VH-OMS which called into Gladstone from Hervey Bay and later departed to Rockhampton. It was to have a busy day of flying as it was due to call back into Hervey Bay on its way back to Toowoomba.
