More Virgin Australia Flight Cancellations sees Boeing B737-800 VH-VUF Call into Gladstone Airport enroute to Rockhampton

It was another interesting day with a couple of interesting arrivals into Gladstone Airport on Tuesday 21 March.  In the late afternoon, Virgin Australia Boeing B737-800 VH-VUF was spotted arriving into Gladstone Airport as VOZ1245 from Brisbane.

This service usually flys direct to Rockhampton Airport, however, on this occasion, due to a cancelled flight in and out of Gladstone Airport, the larger jet was substituted and completed the 'triangular pattern' of flying from Brisbane to Gladstone and then Rocky.

After the sun had set, VH-VUF departed Gladstone for Rockhampton Airport, continuing as VOZ1245.  It later departed Rocky for Brisbane on the delayed VOZ1248 service.

Meanwhile, another interesting helicopter arrival into Gladstone Airport on Tuesday 21 March was Whitsunday Helicopters' Agusta A109E Power VH-KZD.

It looked to fly in direct from its Mackay Airport base and appeared to be spending the night at Gladstone Airport.

UPDATE!  VH-KZD was noted returning to Mackay from Gladstone Airport on Wednesday 22 March.
