After a short while, VH-JFE was noted returning to Brisbane as VOZ1710.
While he was at Gladstone Airport on Wednesday 8 October, local plane spotter Anthony S also captured a pair of CQ-based rescue helicopters that were in town assisting emergency services after a fatal light aircraft crash in nearby Calliope. Gladstone-based Careflight Bell 412EP VH-XCY and Rockhampton-based Capricorn Helicopter Rescue Service (CHRS) Bell 412EP VH-EPR were both spotted, with VH-EPR departed back to Rockhampton.
A surprise visitor on Wednesday 8 October was New South Wales National Parks and Wildlife Cessna U206G VH-NPW ("Park Air 5"). It's movements are not known, but it certainly was a welcome visitor to Central Queensland again!
A very common visitor Central Queensland Airports was again spotted at Gladstone Airport on Wednesday in the form of J.M. Kelly (Project Builders) Cessna 310 VH-FFA. It arrived from and departed back to its Rockhampton base.
Finally, Corporate Air / Vee H Aviation SAAB 340B VH-VEF - which has only recently entered service - was also noted parked on the lower Gladstone Airport apron on Wednesday as well.
Sincere thanks to Anthony S for allowing us to share these great photos!
