A Few Other Plane Spotting Photos from Gladstone Airport

Local plane spotters Jamie C and Tash C have sent through some more fantastic plane spotting photos from Gladstone Airport over recent days.

As mentioned in a Blog post below, Alliance Airlines Fokker F-100 VH-XWR visited Gladstone Airport last week on what was believed to be a Fly-in Fly-out (FIFO) charter flight.  It is pictured above and below departing Gladstone to Brisbane as UTY665 on Thursday 12 September.

Also captured departing to Brisbane on Thursday 12 September was QantasLink (Cobham Aviation) Boeing B717-200 VH-NXH.

On Friday 13 September, AirServices Australia / Pearl Aviation Hawker Beechcraft B300 Super King Air VH-FIY departed back to Brisbane after a couple of days of flight calibration at Gladstone Airport during the week.

Then later on Friday, Jamie captured the arrival of Virgin Australia Regional Airlines ATR 72-500 VH-FVI as it touched down from Brisbane as VOZ1715.

On Saturday 14 September, Jamie captured some spectacular images of QantasLink (Cobham Aviation) Boeing B717-200 VH-NXR as it arrived from, and then later departed back to Brisbane as QJE1714/1715.

Finally, on Sunday 15 September, Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) Raytheon B200 King Air VH-FDW was captured as it departed to Bundaberg as "FlyDoc 447".

And the locally-based Careflight Bell 412EP VH-XCY was captured departing Gladstone Airport for parts unknown.

Sincere thanks to Jamie and Tash for a great few days coverage from Gladstone Airport!
