Making a slightly unexpected, but more than welcome visit to Gladstone Airport late on Wednesday 28 May was Alliance Airlines Fokker F-100 VH-XWR which touched down as UTY650 from Brisbane on a Fly-in Fly-out (FIFO) charter flight.
Local plane spotter Michael F popped out to the Airport and captured a great shot of VH-XWR as it sat on the Gladstone Airport apron for the night.
It departed back to Brisbane early on Thursday 29 May as UTY651.
It's also worth noting that over the course of Tuesday 27 May and Wednesday 28 May, Alliance operated Fokker F-70 VH-JFE into Mackay Airport twice on scheduled services for QantasLink. Certainly a rare change of equipment!
