As mentioned below, local plane spotter Micah S was on hand at Bundaberg Airport on Monday 17 July and he also captured some great photos as the inaugural Alliance Airlines Fokker F-70 jet service operating on behalf of Virgin Australia touched down from Brisbane.
Alliance Airlines Fokker F-70 VH-QQY touched down a little behind schedule from Brisbane as VOZ2973.
After media commitments and a welcome ceremony were completed at Bundaberg Airport, VH-QQY was turned around and soon after it departed back to Brisbane as VOZ2972.
Meanwhile, as the excitement was centred about the Alliance jet, QantasLink Dash-8-Q300 VH-SBJ was also spotted calling into Bundaberg Airport, also from Brisbane but as QLK2322.
It later returned to the capital as QLK2329.
Sincere thanks once again to Micah for again taking the time to capture and send through these great photos!
