Local plane spotter Anthony S ventured to Gladstone Airport on Monday 30 June and captured some of the goings on during a busy morning of General Aviation (GA) visitors along with the usual commercial movements - including QantasLink Dash-8-Q400 VH-QOE which he captured arriving from Rockhampton as QLK2301.
Fellow QantasLink Dash-8-Q400 VH-QOS was captured departing to Sydney as QLK2121.
QantasLink (Cobham Aviation) Boeing B717-200 VH-NXR was also captured by Anthony as it touched down from Brisbane as QJE1704.
Virgin Australia Regional Airlines (VARA) ATR 72-500 VH-FVL was also captured arriving from Brisbane as VOZ1709. It departed back there later as VOZ1712.
On the GA scene, the Queensland Police Service (Airwing) Raytheon B1900D VH-PSK called in for a visit, arriving from Townsville and later departing to Brisbane.
J.M. Kelly (Project Builders) Cessna 310 VH-FFA was also spotted departing Gladstone, returning to its Rockhampton base after a brief visit.
Finally, the visiting Careflight Queensland Bell 412 VH-XCF was towed out of its hangar and had an engine run. VH-XCF is at Gladstone while fellow Careflight Bell 412 VH-XCY is receiving maintenance.
From all accounts, Anthony had an enjoyable morning of plane spotting, and we sincerely thank him for sharing his great images from Gladstone Airport with us!
