Tasmanian-based Aerospatiale AS.350BA Squirrel helicopter VH-IDG was captured as it passed through Gladstone. VH-IDG (c/n 1762) was once a part of the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) as a part of the Aircraft Research and Development Unit (ARDU). It wore the military serial number of A22-007.
Its movements on Friday were not known.
There was another interstate visitor at Gladstone Airport on Friday 8 May that was captured by Jamie and Tash in the form of Shepparton (Victoria) Cirrus SR22 VH-YKR. Again its exact movements are not known.
Finally, locally-based Rutan Long-Ez VH-LEX took to the skies to complete a local flight.
Some great photos from Jamie and Tash in Gladstone, and we thank them sincerely for capturing and for sending through these photos!
