Jetstar Special Colours and more at Mackay Airport
Photographed arriving into Mackay Airport on Saturday 13 November was Jetstar’s A320 VH-VGZ wearing special “Quiksilver” colours. This colour scheme is to promote the “Quiksilver Pro” surfing competition that is held on the Gold Coast each year.
Also spotted was a recent arrival into Mackay in the form of Yakovlev Yak-52 VH-YAF. It is photographed below on final approach after a 10min flight around Mackay and Walkerston.
Later in the afternoon, Surveillance Australia (Australian Customs Service) Dash-8-200 VH-ZZP is photographed arriving into Mackay as “Coastwatch 343”. This photo (below) was taken from my hotel along Nebo Road (Bruce Highway), showing how closely aircraft on final approach to Runway 14 can be seen.
