Toll Freight Aviation ATR 43-300F VH-TOQ Surprise 'Planned' Visit to Rockhampton Airport

During the evening on Friday 24 April, Toll Freight Aviation ATR 43-300F VH-TOQ was a surprise 'planned' visitor to Rockhampton Airport.  It was operating as TFX5 and arrived from Townsville before later departing to Brisbane - usually direct flight.

Reports suggest that there was extra freight to be taken to the capital as well as a possible unserviceable aircraft with a Toll Metro also believed to be parked up and broken down at Rockhampton Airport.

UPDATE!  On Friday 1 May, VH-TOQ did the same, calling into Rockhampton Airport from Townsville and later departing to Brisbane again as TFX5.  I suspect this could be to do with a broken down General Aviation Maintenance (GAM) Dornier 228, as it was noted that there was no arrival into Emerald Airport from Brisbane by the Dornier on Friday and that a Toll Freight Express Metro 23 VH-HPE completed a flight from Brisbane to Biloela / Thangool and Emerald Airports and back as TFX110/113.

Nice!
