A surprise visitor to Mackay Airport early on Tuesday 31 July with Toll Freight Aviation ATR 43-300F VH-TOQ arriving from Brisbane while operating as TFX6. The flight usually now bypasses Mackay Airport and continues direct to Townsville.
After an hour on the ground, VH-TOQ departed Mackay Airport and indeed continued to Townsville again as TFX6.
The exact reason for the 'diversion' is unclear but it appears that no 'usual' Toll Freight Metro aircraft arrived into Mackay Airport early on Tuesday 31 July so the visit may well have been planned!
