QFLink Q400 ROK-BNE + Bundaberg Airshow

Fri Aug 07, 2009 12:10 pm

Just a quick report of my internal flight between Rockhampton and Brisbane
Ill post the airshow pics after. trip made as part of a two month trip to QLD SQ 380,333,77W Y LHR-SIN-BNE RTN (by Jrfspa320 Aug 7 2009 in Trip Reports)

Flight 1: QF 2353 ROK - BNE
27th July 10:05 -11:15
Dash 8Q-400

Arrived at ROK from Yeppoon around 1.5 around before departure, Got checked in easily.
Had a coffee while waiting for the flight. The DJ flight BNE was quite late, meant to leave to 7.15, but passengers still waiting. The terminal was quite flight a few QF flights, a JQ to BNE and DJ departures.

Im not sure what happened but all passengers were aked to leave the gate lounge, i was still landside at this point, and the security point closed and the shutters were put down.
When it opened aroind 15mins later there was a massive line streching all the way round to side wall by check-in.
My flight had already started boarding so i just lifted up the divider and walked through straight to the aircraft. Was nice to walk straight to the aircraft across the tarmac. Bumped my head on the way in as i forgot to duck but got to seat 16D. My first time on a turboprop so i was quite excited. Load of about 95%

Engine of Q400

Crew gave safety demo, looked quite hard for leading crew member to talk and demo at the same time, Engines were started and it wasnt as noisy as i thought it would be and we made our way once the JQ A320 had landed for a flight time of one hour.

QF Q400 heading to Cains/Townsville/Mackay, AND an Omni International DC-10!!!. Looked huge next to the Q400. Anyone know what it was doing there, Army charter?

Climbed to 21000 feet and routed over sunshine coast hinterland.
Cookie and water were served on this short flight, better than nothing (DJ)

Cockpit came on over sunshine coast, said we had slowed up on ATC request due to BNE being busy this morning.
Turned over the sea and back in for a very short final and smooth landing.
Heavy breaking and reverse thrust upon landing so as short as taxi as possible.
Aircraft loud and massive vibration on reverse thrust.
Bussed to terminal and waited for bags

Thanks for the trip report. Flown this route many times before when my family were in Rocky. I always found the approaches to BNE very bumpy.
