A Couple of Photos of Seair De Havilland DHC-6-100 Twin Otter VH-BVS at Bundaberg Airport

On Thursday 4 August, local plane spotter Micah S popped out to Bundaberg Airport and captured our first photos of the recently delivered Seair Pacific / Istelcote De Havilland DHC-6-100 Twin Otter VH-BVS.

It looked to operate into Bundaberg Airport from Lady Elliot Island and Hervey Bay (Fraser Coast) Airport before returning to Lady Elliot Island a little later

VH-BVS made its first visit to CQ in early July after being delivered to Seair / Istlecote in June.

The 'twotter' (MSN 90) has had an interesting history, recently being re-built by CJ Aerospace at Wagga Wagga in New South Wales after being left derelict in the mid-2000's following several years as a skydiving aircraft operating around Sydney as VH-OTA.  It had been reported that VH-BVS was to be delivered to Blue Wing Airline NV in Suriname however, I'm not 100% sure whether it ever left Australia.

VH-BVS is the second De Havilland DHC-6-100 Twin Otter that Seair / Istecote have acquired with VH-ZKF also noted to be making regular visits to Lady Eilliot Island and the Fraser Coast from their Gold Coast base.

Thanks mate!
