Services into Central Queensland Airports were delayed with several flights touching down and departing Gladstone, Rockhampton and Mackay well into the night and into the very early morning on Saturday 2 May.
One interesting diversion into Rockhampton occurred on Friday evening with Virgin Australia Boeing B737-800 VH-YIQ operating the VOZ333 service from Melbourne (Tullamarine) to Brisbane landing at Rocky after being unable to land at Brisbane and experiencing a significant period of holding.

After taking on fuel, VH-YIQ departed soon after heading back to Brisbane where it did land successfully.
