Im assuming the smell of fuel or oil through the packs, not that uncommon on the fokker worse on the 70.

"QF Fokker 100"?

I assume you mean Qantaslink branded, Network operated and Qantas owned/purchased F100 operating with a QF Flight number and rego callsign.

Confusing? :suspect:

Network is a wholly-owned subsidiary of QF, just like Sunstate and Eastern, TL. Pull ya head in.

Gotta love GT's spin on the F100 in the Sat West.
"The fleet of Fokker 100s based in WA is typically at one-third of their design life" rather than comment on the age of the 23year old aircraft.

Don't tell me the Fokkers have another 46 years left in them!

Don't know why the press even bothered to publish.

Hey Bloggs,

Are you still fantasising over that fokker lass. Perhaps you should move onto something more contemporary, like Elle Macpherson or Penny Wong .......:p

Only if you're a Crew Member of a Russian Airline operating them (with tongue firmly in cheek).

Does anyone know which F-100 it was?

I was merely pointing out that for the media and general public, it may be a somewhat confusing set-up regarding Network/Cobham/Qantaslink/Qantas etc. Nothing sinister!:cool:

Given that most media reported plane crashes are made in Cessnas. And that the travelling public generally judge a flight on the nano-seconds of touchdown, I'd reckon one look at the roo on the tail, and there'd be no confusion at all.

It'd have to be an Ansett plane, 'ey! :}

Which returned to service operating PER-LEA-PER within only a couple hours of the evac.

The aircraft hasn't flown since the evacuation.

Must be a Flight Aware glitch, even now it says it did a LEA hop that afternoon (at least I have a source to back myself up even if it is in error :) )

The aircraft was evacuated on a taxiway at the end of the runway so if you saw them on the apron it was a media shot long after the event

Just out of interest, do we know where the smoke was from? The reason I ask is that not so long ago we had a smoke incident caused by a capacitor in the fan circuit of the Emergency Inverter. A 50 cent component installed to reduce fan noise in the inverter casing. It's about the diameter of your little finger and 15mm long. When it lets go it can generate enough smoke to fill an entire aircraft but worse than that, no checklist procedure will stop the smoke. Only turning the entire aircraft off will stop this smoke.

That should have the answer for you PM.

On my skim read, no not the same issue you describe.
