New Zealand Registered Tecnam P-2006T ZK-TWN and Virgin Australia Embraer E-190 Jets at Gladstone Airport This Week

I've been told that New Zealand-registered Tecnam P-2006T ZK-TWN has called into Gladstone Airport at various times over this last week.  The light twin-engine training aircraft - complete with retractable landing gear - has seemingly taken up residence at Redcliffe Aerodrome (where it is photographed below) despite still being registered to its previous operator Bay Flight Aviation in New Zealand.

It looks like ZK-TWN is due to fly into Cairns on Saturday 5 September.

Also interesting to note that Virgin Australia operated two additional Embraer E-190 jet services into Gladstone Airport this week - for reasons unknown.

Starting the week off last Saturday 29 August with VH-ZPB operating the 'weekly' E-190 VOZ1709/1712 service.  Then on Wednesday 2 September VH-ZPN made a surprise visit operating the VOZ1713/1716 scheduled service from and back to Brisbane.  While on Thursday 3 September VH-ZPD operated as VOZ1709/1712.  Finally, on Saturday 5 September, VH-ZPF operated the 'weekly' VOZ1709/1712 flight again from and back to Brisbane.
