CQ Plane Spotting - Where are They Now? Jetstar Airways Airbus A320 VH-VQD - Now Air Calin (New Caledonia) F-OZNC

Where are they now?

As you may know, I am fascinated in the history of aircraft, so thought I'd share some of the interesting history of one particular airframe we saw here in Central Queensland in past years in a semi-regular Blog post called 'Where are they now?'.

Let's start with Jetstar Airways Airbus A320-232 VH-VQD (c/n 3547) which was leased to and delivered to the airline in 2008 and made many visits to CQ including to Mackay Airport in 2013 as pictured.

In 2014, VH-VQD left the Jetstar fleet and was then leased to Air Calin (Air Caledonie International).  It was re-painted into Air Calin’s attractive livery and had the French registration marking of F-OZNC applied.

F-OZNC is a regular visitor to Australia, operating flights from Noumea in New Caledonia to Brisbane (as pictured), Sydney and Melbourne.

Do have any other information on or photos of aircraft that operated in CQ (or even Australia) that are still flying somewhere in the world?  Please share on our Facebook page!!
