Perhaps the nicest visitor was this sleek little Lancair IV-P VH-LWL which arrived from the Gold Coast and was captured later departing to the Sunshine Coast.
One of the more interesting visitors was Thompson Aviation Cessna 210L VH-THS.
Clearly involved in geophysical surveying, VH-THS has a noticeable boom extending from the back of the aircraft. Trevor reports that VH-THS has been working during the early to mid-morning most days over the last week-and-a-half in a location South-East of Rocky. Of interest, VH-THS was spotted departing on another sortie during the afternoon of Sunday 8 February.
Blackwater-based Beech B58P VH-BLT was spotted being parked on the GA apron.
Also still parked on the GA Apron was Australasian Jet Piper PA-31-325 VH-ZMJ.
Pictured arriving into Rocky on Sunday 8 February was Sunshine Coast-based Cessna 150L VH-AZV.
Also locally-based Atlass Aviation Vulcanair (Partenavia) P.68C aircraft VH-KBO arrived from Toowoomba.
And locally-based Van's RV-6 VH-OOK was spotted just as it emerged from a bath!
Finally, Surveillance Australia / Australian Customs and Border Protection Service (Cobham Aviation) Dash-8-202 VH-ZZA was photographed by Kayanne after arriving as "Customs 11".
Sincere thanks to Kayanne and Trevor for capturing and sending through such a great selection of photos from a great Sunday afternoon of plane spotting!
