Auckland Fuel Shortage @ YSSY - 210200ZJUL18

The Qantas Virtual Group delivers fuel to Auckland!



image Auckland Fuel Crisis!

Due to a jet fuel shortage in Auckland, we need to help top up Jetstar Virtual and Qantas Virtual aircraft. We’ll be operating the Qantas Virtual Boeing 747 and Jetstar Virtual Boeing 787 carrying aviation fuel to Auckland, New Zealand.

Once the aircraft arrive in Auckland, the aircraft, nicknamed the ‘fuel mules’, will make the transfer using special hoses that we’ll be freighting in to Auckland. To complete these, aircraft will be parked side by side to complete the transfer as quickly as possible!

The Boeing 747 and the Boeing 787 will siphon about 75,000kgs of fuel by tankering in fuel from Australia (as well as other measures) we’ll be able to minimise the impact to Qantas Virtual and Jetstar Virtual members.

Same here! @TheFlyingKiwi

Oh shoot I completely misunderstood the time. It was 3am for me there was no way I could make it

Assuming there might be anyone from the U.S. interested… what is the E.D.T. conversion time !!!

I strongly doubt the validity of your assumption…and where is @Callum_Brayshaw at !!!
