Great Photos of Virgin Australia B737-800 VH-VUE Go-Around at Rockhampton Airport Tuesday Morning

Local plane spotter 'IAD' popped out to Rockhampton Airport early on Wednesday 18 March to capture some photos of the visiting Tower Holdings Challenger 604 bizjet VH-EVJ - see Blog post below - but he was also able to capture some great photos as the early morning Virgin Australia service from Brisbane was forced to performed a missed approach at Rocky due to birds on the Runway.

VH-VUE was operating the early morning VOZ1231 scheduled service from Brisbane - a flight usually operated by a much smaller ATR 72 of Virgin Australia Regional Airlines (VARA).

With the Runway cleared of the pesky birds, VH-VUE made a smooth landing on Runway 15 before taxiing to its parking spot.

'IAD' also spotted QantasLink Dash-8-Q400 VH-QOH departing Rocky as the early morning QLK2349 service to Brisbane.  VH-QOH still wears the Pink Breast Cancer Awareness colour scheme.

Thanks to 'IAD' for sending through these great photos!
