The Mighty Queensland Maroons Rugby League Team Visit Bundaberg Bringing Vincent BAe 146 and REX SAAB to Bundaberg Airport

Local plane spotter Micah S described Tuesday 28 May as a 'mega' day, as the mighty Queensland Maroons Rugby League team visited Bundaberg bringing a lovely pair of rare aircraft to visit the rum city.

Micah reports that Regional Express (REX) SAAB 340B VH-ZRC arrived from Brisbane late on Monday 27 May.  He managed to catch it during his visit on Tuesday 28 May.  VH-ZRC later departed back to Brisbane.

The other surprise visitor to Bundaberg on Tuesday 28 May was Vincent Aviation BAe 146-200 ZK-ECO.  The BAe 146 actually brought the mighty Maroons players to Bundaberg from Brisbane.

This was ZK-ECO's second visit to Bundaberg in recent months, and it eventually departed to the Sunshine Coast.

While he was at the Airport, Micah also spotted the arrival of the daily Virgin Australia Regional Airlines service from Brisbane, with ATR 72-600 VH-FVY operating the VOZ1701 service from Brisbane.

Finally, Micah also captured a great photo of locally-based AGL Action Helicopter Rescue Service Kawasaki BK117 B-2 helicopter VH-EHQ.

Some absolutely fantastic photos of a wonderful day at Bundaberg Airport.

Sincere thanks to Micah S for firstly alerting us to the 'mega' day, and then sincere thanks for sending through these super shots!
