Rare Daylight Photos as Toll Freight (Toll Aviation) ATR 42-300(F) VH-TOX Breaks Down at Mackay Airport

A unique opportunity for plane spotters in Mackay on Tuesday 2 December to capture some photos in daylight of Toll Freight (Toll Aviation) ATR 42-300(F) VH-TOX.

The ATR - which usually calls in and out of Mackay before dawn during the week - had unfortunately broken down after touching down on schedule from Brisbane as TFX26.

Engineers were then seen inspecting one of the engines and reports suggest that VH-TOX may have had problems with "instrumentation".

To make up for the break down, Toll Freight Metro 23 VH-HPE positioned from Townsville to Mackay and departed to Cairns as TFX703, while fellow Toll Freight Metro 23 VH-UZN - shown below - positioned to Mackay from Brisbane and later departed to Townsville as TFX706.

Around lunchtime, VH-TOX positioned back to Brisbane as TFX707.

Great to see at least local plane spotter captured the ATR!  Thanks mate!
