Local plane spotters Jamie and Tash had great delight in capturing some stunning images of Australian Army Sikorsky S70A-9 Blackhawk A25-214 which called into Gladstone Airport on Monday 31 March.
The Blackhawk - named "Tempest" - arrived from the North and after taking on fuel, departed to its home base of Oakey.
Jamie and Tash report that the soldiers on board the Blackhawk were very friendly, and they thank them sincerely for letting them capture some great images as it was parked.
Meanwhile, on a quiet Sunday 30 March, Jamie and Tash captured some lovely images of QantasLink Dash-8-Q400 VH-QOW which still wears its Taronga Western Plains Zoo Dubbo colours - albeit a bit faded now!
They also captured Dash-8-Q300s VH-TQH and VH-TQD which also visited Gladstone on scheduled services.
Thanks guys for the awesome images!
