QQ has 9 x F70/100's stored at BTS.

Last check it was 4xF70 and 3xF100 (All OE reg).

Plus VH-UQB & UQF

AA was reporting that UQF is due in BNE this month

Yes. Largest F70/100, a few larger fleets of F50 (including around 20 in Kenya).

Almost 3/4 of operational F70/100 are in Australia

They have taken a leaf out of Air Chathamís book, or REX for that matter, operate aircraft that are old and of small book value. Not a great long term business proposition but airlines rarely are.
