Jetstar Engine Change - OOL?

In the goldy today noticed a jetstar 320/21 with a donk missing and a new one sitting next to it. What's the story?
Hope the boys have their zinc cream working in the big blue hangar!

Engine change? Surely not? Modern aircraft don't require that level of maintenance.
Perhaps Gold was found during a boroscope so the Execs quickly yanked the engine to remove the Gold and added it to there monthly bonus??

Got a bit low on the approach, did they?

Engine changes are not quite out of the ordinary. Maybe offshoring work to OOL!

on that day at 0800 the flight I was on OOL-HBA had a 'temp gauge fault' in the left engine. We taxied back in. The ginger beers lifted the cowls. Scratched their heads. We all got off and changed planes.
