Virgin Australia E-190 VH-ZPR - Still with its Red Nose - Calls into Gladstone Airport Saturday

Virgin Australia Embraer E-190 VH-ZPR called into Gladstone Airport on Saturday 31 January as VOZ1709 from Brisbane.

Local plane spotter Michael F was on hand to capture VH-ZPR, which still wears a red nose cone with its Virgin Australia livery!

VH-ZPR was turned-around and later departed back to Brisbane as VOZ1712.  It continues a great trend of Virgin Australia jets calling into Gladstone Airport with - as mentioned below - Virgin B737-700 VH-VBY calling in last Thursday.

Meanwhile, the locally-based Careflight Bell 412EP VH-XCY was also captured by Michael as it returned to Gladstone after making an early morning flight to Rockhampton.

VH-XCY was heard to be using its usual radio callsign of "Rescue 544".

Sincere thanks to Michael for capturing these great photos and for sending them through!
