QantasLink (Cobham Aviation) Boeing B717-200 VH-YQY Calls into Gladstone and Mackay Airports

An interesting arrival into Gladstone Airport on Wednesday 3 August with QantasLink (Cobham Aviation) Boeing B717-200 VH-YQY calling in while operating the scheduled QJE1706/1707 service from and back to Brisbane.

It was then interesting to note that VH-YQY again visited Gladstone Airport on Thursday 4 August operating the QJE1712/1713 scheduled service from and back to Brisbane before later flying into Mackay Airport from Brisbane as QJE1770 where it remained overnight.

VH-YQY is the newest of seven B717-200s that Cobham Aviation operate for QantasLink that have a 2-class configuration with 110 seats, along with Q-Streaming - Qantas' wireless entertainment system.  These aircraft are usually utilised on scheduled services to Hervey Bay (Fraser Coast) and Hamilton Island Airports.
