Alliance Airlines Fokker F-100 VH-XWQ Breaks Down at Emerald Airport

QantasLink passengers experienced a four-hour delay on Saturday 22 September, after an Alliance Airlines Fokker F-100 broke down after arriving at Emerald Airport from Brisbane.

The affected Alliance F-100 - believed to be VH-XWQ (pictured below at Emerald earlier this month) - arrived into Emerald on Saturday morning as QLK2404.

A replacement F-100 - believed to be VH-FKD - was sent to Emerald from Brisbane as UTY990, and then operated the scheduled QLK2405 from Emerald to Brisbane, some four hours late on Saturday.

After receiving maintenance on the ground at Emerald, VH-XWQ positioned back to Brisbane late on Sunday 23 September as UTY991.
