RACQ Careflight / Sunshine Coast Helicopter Rescue Service (SCHRS) BK117 B-2 VH-BKV Also Spotted at Hervey Bay Airport

As I was preparing the Blog post below, local plane spotter Ben M has kindly shared some more photos he took on Friday 10 July as RACQ Careflight / Sunshine Coast Helicopter Rescue Service (SCHRS) Kawasaki BK117 B-2 helicopter VH-BKV popped into Hervey Bay / Fraser Coast Airport as "Rescue 511" from its Sunshine Coast Base.

The RACQ Careflight / SCHRS operates two BK117 helicopters through the Fraser Coast and Wide Bay regions - including Bundaberg, Maryborough and Hervey Bay - with VH-BKV joined by VH-EHQ ("Rescue 522").

The RACQ Careflight SCHRS - formally known as AGL Action Rescue - merged with the CareFlight Group Queensland in July 2013.  The SCHRS and the iconic RACQ CareFlight Rescue now come under the umbrella of CareFlight Group Queensland.
