It departed Longreach back to Brisbane on Sunday 23 February as UTY581.

Meanwhile, last week at Longreach Airport, QantasLink had some maintenance issues with Dash-8-Q400 VH-QOC suffering a bird strike at Blackall on Wednesday 19 February while operating as QLK2352 from Brisbane to Longreach via Blackall.  Later that night, VH-QOC departed back to Brisbane empty as QLK6705.

Fellow Dash-8-Q400s VH-LQL and VH-QOH were summoned to Longreach, with VH-QOH eventually operating the delayed QLK2533 flight back to Brisbane.

VH-QOC re-entered service with QantasLink on Sunday 23 February.
