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?

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!

Hey Bloggs,

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

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

Bloggs,

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!

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!

The aircraft hasn't flown since the evacuation.
