According to sources, the early morning Virgin Australia (Alliance Airlines-operated) Fokker F-100 service from Brisbane to Rokchampton diverted to Gladstone. Obviously, the fog at Gladstone had lifted sufficiently, and DJ1251, which was operated by VH-XWM, touched down at Gladstone Airport at about 7.30am.
After about 45 minutes on the ground at Gladstone, VH-XWM departed to Rockhampton, from where it later departed as the delayed DJ1252 back to Brisbane. (File photo below)
Meanwhile, also spotted at Gladstone Airport on Monday 6 August, were QantasLink Dash-8-Q400 VH-QOF, which Shane T caught just before touch-down.
Also spotted was QantasLink (Cobham Aviation) Boeing B717-200 VH-NXO, which from what I can see, was operating a slightly delayed service to Gladstone Airport from Brisbane - perhaps due to the early morning fog?
Lastly, Virgin Australia (Skywest Airlines) ATR 72-500 VH-FVH was photographed by Shane departing back to Brisbane.
