Not sure if this was the incident reported 3ish weeks ago or a new one. I take it that this was a separate incident as QF851 was reported.
The NT news reporting is all over the place, the Qantas head of engineering quoted in the article says it is as a 787 (and I’d like to believe he’d know, although given he shares his name with an NT MLA I concede it’s possible the news phoned the wrong person).

assuming it was a 787 this suggests the flight in question was QF6119 on 12th June, which was a positioning flight

I can’t account for why a positioning flight was having baggage loaded, especially on a Dreamliner where you’d expect stuff to be containerised- can Darwin even do containerised freight these days?

Anyone able to throw any light on this entire thing, appreciated

Forgot to mention, I also can’t account for why the union is saying “passengers put at risk” etc if it was a positioning flight

I think if a plane is on positioning move if freight is also going that way they put it on.

Agree seems reasonable but the suggestion seems to be it wasn’t a container loader that hit it, rather a baggage type belt thing. Which would make more sense if Darwin can’t do containerised freight
