Cast and Crew of US Sitcom "Modern Family" Pop Into Hamilton Island Airport on Qantas B737-800 VH-XZK

On Tuesday 25 February, the cast and crew of US sitcom "Modern Family" touched down at Hamilton Island Airport on board a specially chartered Qantas Boeing B737-800.

The B737-800 - VH-XZK - flew into Hamilton Island from Sydney as QFA1350, before ferrying back to Sydney as QFA6161.  Of note was that VH-XZK was wearing special titles to highlight the partnership that Qantas has in bringing the cast and crew of the popular TV show down to Australia.

Sydney plane spotter Bernie P (aka 'AussiePomm') captured a couple of great photos of VH-XZK at Sydney on Tuesday.  He posted these and more superb images from Sydney Airport on his personal Flickr Photostream (

It's also worth mentioning that Qantas applied the special titles to one of their Airbus A380 aircraft - VH-OQK - which flew the cast and crew to Sydney earlier in the week.

Also touching down at Hamo on Tuesday 25 February were the Queensland Government (State of Queensland) Raytheon Hawker 850XP bizjet VH-SGY and Raytheon B300 Super King Air VH-SGQ, bringing Premier Newman and other Government officials to the Island for the day.

Sincere thanks to Bernie for allowing us to share his photos of VH-XZK with you all!
