Local plane spotter Kayanne H endured computer issues but still managed to capture and send through some more great photos of Jetstar Airways Airbus A320 VH-VGR approaching Rockhampton Airport late on Monday 8 June.
VH-VGR was operating as JST888 from Brisbane to Mackay when smoke and fumes were reported in the aircraft's cabin about half way through its journey. The pilot declared a 'PAN' and the aircraft immediately began a descent and diverted to Rocky, where the A320 landed safely with emergency services on stand-by.
It is expected that VH-VGR will depart Rockhampton Airport some time on Tuesday 9 June.
UPDATE! VH-VGR is expected to depart Rocky to the Gold Coast as JST7981 in the early afternoon on Tuesday.
Thanks to Kayanne for capturing and sending through these awesome photos!
