Late on Thursday 11 December, the scheduled QantasLink Dash-8 service from and back to Brisbane - QLK2396/2397 - operated by Dash-8-Q300 VH-TQE was forced to land at Rockhampton after diverting from Thangool. Around 10pm, it departed Rocky for Thangool, and after what looked like a quick turnaround, VH-TQE departed back to Brisbane.
Then early on Friday 12 December, the morning Toll Freight (Toll Express) Metro freight service from Brisbane to Emerald via Thangool - TFX110 operated by Metro III Expeditor VH-UZI - was spotted on the ground at Gladstone after being unable to land presumably due to the flood-water.
