Local plane spotters Jamie and Tash have sent through some spectacular images captured at Gladstone Airport on Saturday 5 April as AirServices Australia / Pearl Aviation Hawker Beechcraft B300 Super King Air VH-FIY performed a series of missed approaches and low passes as it conducted a calibration flight of the Gladstone Airport Instrument Landing System (ILS).
VH-FIY actually touched down at Gladstone late on Friday 4 April.
Around mid-morning on Saturday, it departed and performed several passes over the Airport.
Eventually, VH-FIY landed back at Gladstone Airport, took on fuel, and departed North to Townsville.
Some fantastic images of VH-FIY, and we sincerely thank Jamie and Tash for sending these through!
