Jamie captured some of the action during the late morning including the new locally-based Careflight Queensland Bell 412EP VH-XCY which is based at Gladstone Airport.
The Careflight chopper has taken up residence in Gladstone this year thanks largely to the local LNG companies - whose logos emblazon the side of VH-XCY.
Also spotted at Gladstone on Friday 8 March was Air Link (Dubbo) Beech 1900D VH-RUE which operated a charter in and out of Gladstone from Brisbane.
About lunchtime, Virgin Australia Embraer E-190 VH-ZPK was noted touching down from Brisbane as VOZ1713. Jamie caught VH-ZPK at it departed back to Brisbane as VOZ1716.
It's also worth noting that the Queensland Government (State Of Queensland) Raytheon Hawker 850XP bizjet VH-SGY also departed Gladstone Airport for Brisbane on Friday 8 March. It had arrived the previous evening.
Later on Friday 8 March, Michael F ventured to Gladstone Airport and captured some fantastic images around dusk, including CromAir Cessna 414A Chancellor VH-CBT as it departed back to its Bundaberg base.
Michael also captured some fantastic images of the early evening commercial visitors including Cobham Aviation-operated Boeing B717-200's VH-NXO and VH-NXR.
I personally love this photo of VH-NXR right at the point of touch down on Gladstone Airport's Runway 10.
Gladstone now receives as many as five QantasLink Cobham Aviation-operated B717-200s most weekdays.
Also spotted was Virgin Australia (Skywest Airlines) ATR 72-500 VH-FVM as it touched down from Brisbane as VOZ1715.
Later, the CareFlight Bell 412EP VH-XCY returned to its Gladstone Airport base.
A big thanks for Jamie C and Michael F for sending through these absolutely fantastic photos!
