Sunday Afternoon Jet Action at Gladstone Airport - A Nice Surprise!

Gladstone Airport Plane Spotters, Jamie C and Michael F have captured some fantastic photos of a busy afternoon of jet action at Gladstone Airport on Sunday 3 February.

Alliance Airlines Fokker F-100 VH-XWQ was first to touch down mid-afternoon, operating for QantasLink as UTY2332 (QLK2332) from Brisbane.

It was quickly turned around and departed back to Brisbane as UTY2333.  Jamie C captured some great photos of the departing Fokker!

Shortly after, Virgin Australia Embraer E-190 VH-ZPD arrived also from Brisbane but as VOZ1715.

Michael F decided to try out his new camera lens and captured some lovely images as VH-ZPD departed back to Brisbane as VOZ1718.

Then later still, QantasLink (Cobham Aviation) Boeing B717-200 VH-NXI was photographed arriving into Gladstone from Brisbane as QJE1716.

VH-NXI capped off a great afternoon of jet action at Gladstone Airport.

A couple of light aircraft at Gladstone Airport during the afternoon of Sunday 3 February included Cessna 182 VH-CLZ and Cessna 172 VH-CBC.

Lastly, Jamie C captured a couple more helicopter movements at Gladstone Airport from late last week.  

Reid Heliwork Bell 206L-3 VH-CWQ was spotted again, this time along with Agusta 206B VH-BCX which is also operated by Reid Heliwork.

Very smart looking Aerostructures Bell 206B VH-ITM was also photographed by Jamie.

Thanks guys!
