Spectacular Photos of QantasLink Boeing B717-200 VH-YQW 'Tassie Devil' Special Livery at Gladstone Airport Monday

As we reported below, a very rare visitor called into Gladstone Airport on Monday 15 December in the form of QantasLink (Cobham Aviation) Boeing B717-200 VH-YQW.

Local plane spotters Jamie and Tash were also on hand and send through some fantastic photos that they captured.

This was the B717's first visit to Gladstone, days after its d├ębut appearance up the road at Rockhampton.  VH-YQW operated the scheduled QJE1704/1705 service from and back to Brisbane, presumably in place of fellow B717-200 VH-NXJ which has only just departed Rockhampton Airport this morning after breaking down over the weekend.

VH-YQW is one of five B717-200s in a 2-class configuration with 125 seats, along with Q-Streaming - Qantas' wireless entertainment system.

Sincere thanks to Jamie and Tash for capturing and sending through these fantastic photos!
