One of my friends, Shane, who is an enthusiast in Gladstone, went for a ‘joyride’ on the Virgin Australia (Skywest Airlines-operated) ATR 72-500 service from Gladstone to Brisbane and back. I've been a bit slack as this was a trip he took in March, but if you are interested, he kindly shares some of his thoughts, as well as some lovely pictures from the flights and while spotting at Brisbane Airport.
