Clermont Bound Skytrans Dash-8-300 VH-QQP Returns to Brisbane Airport with Technical Problems

Skytrans Airlines Dash-8-300 VH-QQP (pictured below at Clermont Aerodrome last year) was forced to return to Brisbane Airport shortly after take-off on Monday 4 February.  VH-QQP was operating the SKP870 Fly-in Fly-out (FIFO) charter flight from Brisbane to Clermont.

VH-QQP reportedly returned to Brisbane only 18 minutes after departure after reporting that it had a minor technical problem. The aircraft was turned around as a precaution and landed back safely at Brisbane at around 5pm.

Dash-8-100 VH-QQI later operated into Clermont as the rescheduled SKP870, joining sisterships VH-QQH and VH-QQM on the ground at Clermont.

They all departed back to Brisbane early on Tuesday 5 February.
