Qantas Freight (Pionair Australia) British Aerospace BAe 146-200QC VH-SIF Pops into Mackay Airport - Plus More!

On Friday 19 January, something a little different with Qantas Freight (Pionair Australia) British Aerospace BAe 146-200QC (Quick Change) VH-SIF operating the early morning freight flight up to Rockhampton and Mackay Airports from and back to Brisbane as QFA7424.

UPDATE!  VH-SIF in fact operated from Brisbane to Mackay Airport and then Cairns as QFA7424/7298.  There was no flight into Rockhampton Airport.

Of interest, Qantas Freight (Pionair Australia) BAe 146-200(QT) VH-SFW had been operating the flights into Rockhampton and Mackay Airports during the rest of this past week.

It seems that the 'regular' airframe operating the run - Qantas Freight (Pionair Australia operated) British Aerospace BAe 146-200QT VH-SFV - could be in for some planned maintenance after flying into Pionair's Bankstown base earlier in the week.

Meanwhile, also on Friday 19 January, Townsville Airlines Beech 1900D VH-JYA arrived into Rockhampton Airport from Cairns and Townsville before then departing to Brisbane.  It then flew back to Townsville and Cairns.

Machjet International Beech B200 King Air VH-ZSY as Machflight 55 landed at Bundaberg Airport from Cairns and then departed to Lizard Island.

Stirling Helicopters Piper PA-23-250 Aztec VH-EQD arrived into Rockhampton Airport from Roma Airport and then departed to Archerfield.

And Skytrans Airlines Dash-8-300 VH-QQL flew a maintenance flight as SKP543 out from Rockhampton Airport to around the Keppels and back.
