Former Cirrus SR22 Generation 5 Demonstrator VH-SDA Spotted at Rockhampton Airport

While they've been out at Rockhampton Airport over recent days, local plane spotters Kayanne H and Trevor H have also captured some photos of a couple of interesting light General Aviation (GA) aircraft that have also called into the beef capital.

Recently registered Cirrus SR22 VH-SDA was spotted visiting Rocky after arriving from Mackay Airport on Monday 9 May.  On Wednesday 11 May, VH-SDA continued further South to Walgett.

Of interest, VH-SDA was one of several Cirrus single-engine aircraft that called into Longreach Airport over the Labour Day long-weekend while on an air-safari up to Far North Queensland.

VH-SDA has spent some time flying around parts of Australia as a Cirrus demonstration aircraft.

And of course, the registration marking VH-SDA has history in CQ as it was once worn by a QantasLink Dash-8-200 aircraft.

Meanwhile, another notable lightie visiting Rockhampton Airport on Monday 9 May was Redjet Aviation Piper PA-31 Navajo VH-PJU which visited briefly from its Toowoomba base.

It also visited - and is pictured above - at Rockhampton Airport on Friday 6 May when it once again visited from Toowoomba.

Finally, on Tuesday 10 May, Kayanne spotted Glasair Sportsman 2+2 VH-OAO which looks to be receiving attention at Rockhampton Airport.

The smart little amateur-built aircraft is registered in South Australia.

Thanks guys!
