Another Virgin Australia Embraer E-190 at Gladstone Airport Saturday - Plus a Few Others!

As expected, Virgin Australia sent Embraer E-190 VH-ZPQ to Gladstone Airport a scheduled service from and back to Brisbane on Saturday 28 July.

Jamie C was on hand to catch the E-190 as it arrived from Brisbane as DJ1711.

After being turned around, VH-ZPQ is shown departing back to Brisbane as DJ1712.

That makes two E-190's that have landed at Gladstone Airport this week, with VH-ZPT touching down last Tuesday 24 July.  I believe another is 'scheduled' to operate to Gladstone in mid-August.

Jamie C also spotted a few QantasLink (Sunstate Airlines) Dash-8 arrivals and depatures at Gladstone Airport on Saturday 28 July. Shown below are Dash-8-Q300 VH-SBT and Dash-8-Q400's VH-QOJ and VH-LQF.

VH-LQF is a new 'next gen' Dash-8-Q400, and was recently adorned with additional titles highlighting the fact that QantasLink was the 'Regional Airline of the Year for 2012'.

Lastly, a late arrival into Gladstone Airport on Friday 27 July was Mineralogy Agusta A119 'Koala' VH-KOL, which touched down, and was believed to be carrying Mineralogy Owner Clive Palmer.

What a great Saturday!
