A Few Interesting Light GA Aircraft Also at Fraser Coast Airports This Week

As well as the beaut New Zealand Air Ambulance Nextant 400TXi bizjet ZK-NXJ visiting Hervey Bay (Fraser Coast) Airport, there have also been a couple of interesting light General Aviation (GA) aircraft to also call in.

On Wednesday 23 March Seair Pacific (Istlecote) Cessna 208 Caravan VH-LMZ was noted departing Hervey Bay on a Fly-in Fly-out (FIFO) charter flight to Wanella Station near Coppabella.  It later flew to Maryborough before being later noted returning to the Gold Coast from Lady Elliot Island via Redcliffe.

UPDATE!  It appears that on Thursday 24 March (and maybe again on Friday 25 March) fellow Seair Cessna 208 Caravan VH-TWX was noted calling into Hervey Bay from the Gold Coast.

Also on Wednesday 23 March, Redjet Aviation Piper PA-31 Navajo VH-PJU had a busy day of flying, departing its Toowoomba base and flying to Archerfield and then Hervey Bay before continuing North to Rockhampton (where it was spotted by Kayanne H).

After a few hours on the ground it returned South over the same route.

VH-PJU also called into Hervey Bay from Toowoomba on Tuesday 22 March.

Also on Tuesday 22 March, Seair Cessna 208 Caravan VH-TQW called into Hervey Bay, as did Maroochy Air Cessna 182 VH-TOE and  Flight One (Services) Cirrus SR22 VH-VGG.  While on Monday 21 March Sunshine Coast based Cirrus SR22 VH-YRH called in.

Finally, also on Monday 21 March, colourful Brisbane-based Cessna 414A VH-FCZ visited Maryborough Airport for part of the day from its Archerfield base.
