Alliance Fokker F-70 VH-JFE Back plus QLink Dash-8-Q400 VH-QOE Breaks Down at Gladstone Airport

For the second time this week, Alliance Airlines Fokker F-70 VH-JFE has called into Gladstone Airport, this time it was operating a flight for QantasLink during the afternoon on Friday 10 October.

It operated as QFA2636/2637, flying from and back to Brisbane.

Also touching down on Friday 10 October was Whitsunday Helicopter's Agusta A109E VH-TRW which left its Mackay base and called into Rockhampton Airport before heading further South to Gladstone.  It departed back to Mackay later that evening.

Meanwhile, on Thursday 9 October, QantasLink Dash-8-Q400 VH-QOE touched down early into Gladstone operating the QLK2300 'milk run' from Brisbane to Cairns via Gladstone, Rockhampton, Mackay and Townsville.  But it didn't go any further - breaking down and sitting on the main taxiway at Gladstone Airport for the day.

It eventually departed Gladstone, re-positioning to Brisbane early on Friday 10 October.  VH-QOE re-entered service later in the day.
