Qantas Boeing B737-800 VH-XZJ in Mendoowoorrji Aboriginal Colours Calls into Hamilton Island Airport

For the only the second time since Qantas launched their jet services from Sydney, Boeing B737-800 VH-XZJ - wearing a special Aboriginal art colour scheme called “Mendoowoorrji” - has called into Hamilton Island Airport.

On Sunday 26 October, VH-XZJ touched down as QFA866 and later departed back to Sydney as QFA867.

Meanwhile, also on Sunday 26 October, Brenzil Dassault Falcon 7X bizjet VH-CRW departed Hamilton Island for Brisbane after touching down at Hamo from there on Friday 24 October.

Finally, during the last week there was a maintenance issue with a QantasLink Dash-8-Q300 which caused a significant delay on a flight from Hamilton Island to Cairns.  On Thursday 23 October, VH-SBI operated the scheduled QLK2503 service into Hamo from Cairns, however it seemed to break down and did not depart back to Cairns.

Later on Thursday 23 October. fellow Dash-8-Q300 VH-TQH ferried from Cairns to Hamilton Island and then departed back to Cairns as the (now) delayed QLK2504 service.

VH-SBI eventually ferried back to Cairns around midday on Friday 24 October.
