I travelled to Emerald on Wednesday 26 November and was pleasantly surprised to captured Alliance Airlines Fokker F-70 VH-JFB visiting from Brisbane. It was operating a scheduled service for QantasLink, touching down as UTY2402. VH-JFB then departed back to Brisbane as UTY2403.
VH-JFB then departed Brisbane for Rockhampton, again operating a scheduled service to and from Rockhampton for QantasLink as UTY2356/2357.
Of interest, Alliance Fokker F-70 VH-JFE was noted operating into Mackay from Cairns and Townsville, again operating for QantasLink as UTY2666. It returned to Cairns via Townsville as UTY2667.
Finally, back at Emerald Airport, I also captured the weekly Alliance Airlines operated Fly-in Fly-out (FIFO) charter flight from Brisbane to Emerald and back. On Wednesday 26 November, VH-QQY was operating the UTY1070/1071 flight.
A great day!
