As expected, during the late morning on Monday 5 March, Skytraders Pty Ltd Airbus A319-115(LR) VH-VHD "Snowbird 1" departed Gladstone Airport destined for Melbourne (Tullamarine) Airport. The photos below show the smart little A319 being prepared for its departure.
As posted below, it arrived from there on Sunday 4 March.
It's unclear about the reason for VH-VHD's visit, however as we've posted, Skytaders is the provider of specialist air services to the Australian Federal Government. They operate charters to Antarctica and provide transport for refugees / illegal immigrants around Australia and parts of the Pacific.
