Careflight (Qld) Bell 412 Helicopters VH-XCF & VH-XCY at Gladstone Airport Monday Night

Local plane spotter Michael F ventured to Gladstone Airport late on Monday 28 July and captured some stunning atmospheric night photos of the visiting Careflight Queensland Bell 412 rescue helicopter VH-XCF after it completed some air work in the Gladstone local area.

Interestingly, it was parked on the heli-pad near the Gladstone Airport apron.

And the reason why it was parked there became apparent when local Careflight Bell 412EP VH-XCY arrived back into Gladstone Airport after completing planned maintenance at Archerfield.

At the time of writing, on Tuesday 29 June, VH-XCF had departed Gladstone after midday on its return flight to Archerfield.  So it looks like VH-XCY is back to stay again!

Thanks Michael for capturing these fantastic photos!
