QantasLink Boeing B717-200 VH-YQW 'Tassie Devil' Special Livery Diverts to Gladstone Airport while Enroute Brisbane to Mackay Airport

More flight cancellations causing disruptions for passengers travelling in and out of Gladstone this week with, early on Wednesday 2 November, QantasLink (Cobham Aviation) Boeing B717-200 VH-YQW diverting to Gladstone Airport while operating as QJE1732 from Brisbane to Mackay Airport.

VH-YQW wears very unique decals and is named 'The Tassie Devil' and is also one of seven QantasLink B717 aircraft that has a 2-class configuration with 110 seats, along with Q-Streaming - Qantas' wireless entertainment system.

One report suggests that the diversion to Gladstone was to accommodate stranded passengers resulting from the cancellation of the early morning QantasLink QLK2332 Dash-8-Q400 service from Brisbane to Gladstone earlier on Wednesday 2 November.

A nice surprise!
