    Air Nauru 737

    Hi,
    So, friends have been in contact from Gladstone (GLT) inquiring as to the reason a 737 in Air Nauru livery has just departed there after a stop of about 24 hours. Does anyone here know?

    It used to do FIFO charters-
    Central Queensland Plane Spotting: Our Airline / Air Nauru Boeing B737-300 VH-PNI Pops Into Gladstone Airport Friday Night

    But was working in Rocky yesterday and the local rag said it was a private charter.But the big LNG plants are there so possibly related to that.

    Re: Air Nauru 737

    Perhaps to do with Norfolk Island Airlines, whom have said they will lease a 737 off Air Nauru to fly the NLK-AKL route Air NZ is stopping come May..

    Maybe it's Linc execs skipping the country after their very predictable coal gasification vandalism debacle!

    A Gladstone local has let me know she thinks it is for transporting some apprehended illegal fishermen.

    A contact referred me to this website http://www.afma.gov.au/two-vietnames...the-coral-sea/

    A smarter person will explain to me the expenditure vs regulation.

    My first thought was maybe a someone commandeered it, like the old days, for a spot of shopping but I dont think theres a designer store in Gladstone, is there?

    Air Nauru is a charter plane for the Department of Immigration/ABF.

    I've flown on it a number of times

    It would have been a transfer of some kind.
