Local plane spotter 'IAD' has sent through some more great plane spotting photos captured at Rockhampton Airport over the last couple of weeks.
During the wet weather last week, 'IAD' ventured to Rocky Airport on Thursday 27 March as captured a couple of nice atmospheric photos of Virgin Australia Boeing B737-800 VH-VOL as it arrived into the beef capital as VOZ1245 from Brisbane.
An interesting arrival into Rocky last week was this Wagga Wagga based SOCATA TBM-850 VH-PVM. The aircraft displays stickers as a TBM-850, although registration information has it as a TBM-700. Confusing!
VH-PVM popped into a few Central Queensland Airports including Biloela / Thangool, Rocky, Emerald, Hervey Bay, and this week, Gladstone, Chinchilla and Roma.
This week on Tuesday 1 April, Hopair Cessna 337E Skymaster VH-OIQ arrived at Rockhampton from its Cairns base.
Also spotted on Tuesday was Surveillance Australia / Australian Customs and Border Protection Service (Cobham Aviation) Dash-8-202 VH-ZZA, which was photographed arriving after completing a surveillance sortie as "Customs 11".
QantasLink (Cobham Aviation) Boeing B717-200 VH-NXG was also spotted arriving into Rockhampton.
Some great photos from Rockhampton by 'IAD'. We sincerely thank him for continuing support and contributions to the CQ Plane Spotting Blog.
