Toll Freight Aviation ATR 43-300F VH-TOQ Surprise Visit(s) to Mackay Airport

A surprise Black Friday visitor to Mackay Airport twice on Friday 13 March with Toll Freight Aviation ATR 43-300F VH-TOQ popping in during the early morning and early evening.

VH-TOQ initially touched down at Mackay Airport from Brisbane while operating as TFX6.  After an hour on the ground, it departed Mackay Airport and continued to Townsville again as TFX6.

VH-TOQ then arrived back into Mackay Airport from Townsville during the early evening but as TFX5.  After some time on the ground, it departed Mackay Airport and continued to Brisbane again as TFX5.

These flight usually bypass Mackay Airport and operate direct between Brisbane and Townsville.  The exact reason for the visit is unclear but it appears that no 'usual' Toll Freight Metro aircraft arrived into Mackay Airport on Friday 13 March so the visit may well have been planned!

Of interest, it appears that VH-TOQ also called into Mackay Airport, operating call in during the morning on Wednesday 4 March and both in the morning and evening on Friday 21 February.
