Qatar Airways B777-300ER A7-BEJ operating 'QR904' from Doha-Melbourne diverted to Adelaide due to poor weather at its intended destination. The aircraft arrived into Adelaide at 17.30hrs. After a quick re0fuel the aircraft continued to Melbourne departing at 19.00.

This was BEJ's 1st visit to Adelaide. This was only the 2nd ever Qatar B777 to visit Adelaide, the only other visit was by A7-BAA back in 2013.
