Friday 13 June at Gladstone Airport was a great day for local plane spotters Jamie and Tash who captured some spectacular photos not only of a couple of great visitors, but also the stunning full moon as it rose over the industrial city.
One of the visitors to (depart) Gladstone Airport on Friday was Corporate Air / Vee H Aviation SAAB 340B VH-VEM which departed to Brisbane on a closed charter.
VH-VEM had reportedly arrived the previous evening.
The other interesting visitor was Stock-Air Helicopters (of 'Stockyard Creek' at Marlborough) Robinson R44 II VH-VVW.
After dropping its passenger off, VH-VVW made a spectacular departure from Gladstone heading North.
Incidentally, on Wednesday 11 June, sleek little New South Wales-based Lancair IV VH-XCG called in from parts unknown. It certainly wears a very attractive colour scheme!
Finally, as mentioned above, after the sun went down on Friday 13 June, Jamie and Tash were treated to some spectacular views over Gladstone Airport featuring a stunning full moon as it rose over the industrial city.
Sincere thanks to Jamie and Tash for sharing these awesome photos from Gladstone Airport - they have certainly been at the right place at the right time to capture this weeks fantastic action!
