Qantas Airways Boeing B737-800 VH-VZE Touches Down at Gladstone Airport Thursday
As expected the mass return of local resource-industry workers back into Central Queensland has commenced at Gladstone Airport on Thursday 2 January in spectacular fashion.
Qantas Airways Boeing B737-800 VH-VZE touched down from Brisbane in the early afternoon as QFA1350. It then positioned back to Brisbane empty as QFA6101.
VH-VZE then returned to Gladstone again from Brisbane in the late afternoon but as QFA1352. After unloading, it again departed back to Brisbane empty as QFA6103.
It's also worth mentioning that while the B737 operated charter flights from Brisbane, QantasLink Dash-8-Q400 aircraft have again been operating charter flights from Sydney into Gladstone.
Certainly some great movement into Gladstone - local plane spotters have been very lucky to have two Qantas B737s pass through twice each over the Christmas / New Year period. Stay tuned to the CQ Plane Spotting Blog for some great photos!
