Queensland Police Service (Airwing) Raytheon B1900D VH-PSK Spotted at Maryborough Airport During a Busy Day of Flying

Bundaberg-based plane spotter Micah S ventured to Maryborough on Friday 15 August for business, but found time to call into Maryborough Airport - a place he has not visited on previous occasions.  While he was there he captured some great photos of the visiting Queensland Police Service (Airwing) Raytheon B1900D VH-PSK which had called in during a very busy days flying.

Research reveals that VH-PSKstarted and finished its day in Cairns, flying via Townsville (twice), Mackay, Rockhampton, Maryborough and Brisbane.

As mentioned below, the Queensland Police Cessna 560 Citation Ultra bizjet VH-PSU also called into Maryborough during the week touching down on Wednesday 13 August.

Meanwhile, another interesting visitor to Maryborough this week was Shadforth's Plant Hire Raytheon (Beech) C90A VH-JEO which called in at least three times over the course of Thursday 14 August and Friday 15 August.

Finally, Micah also sends through a photo from Maryborough of a tired old Embraer EMB-110P2 Bandeirante - registered VH-OZF.  The 'Bandit' has been a long-time resident of Maryborough and at one stage shared the apron with at least one other of the little Embraer turbo-props.

Currently VH-OZF is registered to Aerolink Air Services in New South Wales, however research reveals that prior to landing in Maryborough in the late 2000's, VH-OZF was used for skydiving in - of all places - Guam.  Prior to that, there are photos of (a) VH-OZF operating for Aus-Air.

Sincere thanks to Micah for sending through these great photos from Maryborough!
