Late on Friday 8 July, local plane spotter Micah S captured a couple of great photos of Surveillance Australia / Australian Border Force (ABF) Cobham Aviation-operated Dash-8-200 VH-ZZJ soon after it touched down at Bundaberg Airport after completing a sortie as "Borderforce 88".
During the latter part of its flight, VH-ZZJ was tasked to assist with a search and rescue call off the Fraser Coast. It joined the locally-based RACQ Careflight / Sunshine Coast Helicopter Rescue Service (SCHRS) Kawasaki BK117 B -2 VH-BKV "Rescue 511" along with Aerorescue (AMSA - Australian Maritime Safety Authority) / Aero Pearl Dornier 328-100 VH-PPJ "Rescue 471" which looked to fly up from its Brisbane base in the search.
Some great photos captured by Micah - we thank him sincerely for sharing them with us!
