Default ALLIANCE F70s VH-QQV and VH-QQY

Does anyone know what has happened to -QQV and -QQY as they do not appear to have flown for several months ?

It looks like QQY is flying again.

QQ was operating F70's in SA after the F50's were retired.

With aggressive marketing by Cobham (at the time) replacing the BAE146's with E190s. The E190's were marketed as being newer, fuel efficient and greener than the "old" Fokkers.

QQ switched the F70's for E190's.

So there maybe some F70 "excess to requirements"
