Local plane spotter Michael F was on hand at Gladstone Airport to capture some great images as it landed and taxied to parking where it was refuelled.
It was flying South from Townsville after the completion the RAAF's Exercise High Sierra where it was in town to support participants flying in F/A-18B Hornet and BAe Hawk 127 jets.
VH-HRP was noted using its 'usual' radio callsign of "Choppa 3".
Meanwhile, Michael also captured QantasLink Dash-8-Q400 VH-QON, along with Virgin Australia Regional Airlines (VARA) ATR 72-500 VH-FVU as they called into Gladstone Airport on scheduled services on Saturday 28 June.
Finally, Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) Hawker Beechcraft B200 King Air VH-FDA was captured resting in between flights, having earlier arrived from Bundaberg.
It later departed to Brisbane.
Sincere thanks to Michael for sending through these awesome images!
