Meanwhile, Col captured some photos on Sunday 22 November of another pair of Virgin Australia jets at Gladstone Airport with Embraer E-190s VH-ZPQ and then VH-ZPE visiting in quick succession on scheduled services from and back to Brisbane.
It was suggested that VH-ZPE may have been one of the last Virgin Australia jet services into Gladstone Airport given a recent reported downturn in Fly-in Fly-out (FIFO) demand from local industry. However, this doesn't seem to be the case with, also on Monday 23 November, Embraer E-190s VH-ZPN and VH-ZPQ also calling in along with the B737-800 VH-YFT!
In fact, as this post is being written, early on Tuesday 24 November, I note that Virgin Australia Embraer E-190 VH-ZPJ is currently enroute to Gladstone operating the early morning VOZ1707 service from Brisbane!
So, the jets continue into Gladstone!
Thanks Col for sending through these great photos!
