After touching down at Gladstone Airport on Saturday 6 September, Regional Express (REX) SAAB 340B VH-ZLW has finally departed Gladstone Airport. It encountered an engineering problem after a planned departure early on Monday 8 September.
Reports suggest that the SAAB was fully loaded, and then taxied away before lining up on Gladstone Airport's Runway 10. After a period of time, it taxied back to the terminal and unloaded all its passengers and freight.
VH-ZLW was later noted receiving attention on the Eastern end of Gladstone Airport.
On Tuesday 9 September, VH-ZLW was 'scheduled' to depart at 12pm midday, however, it didn't actually depart back to Brisbane as PFY9309 at about 4pm.
Meanwhile, noted touching down early on Tuesday 9 September was Bechtel-operated Dassault Falcon 900EX bizjet N980SF.
