Another New Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) Beech B300C Super King Air VH-FDF "FlyDoc 449" Visits CQ Airports

A nice surprise to see another one of the new Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) Beech B300C Super King Air VH-FDF "FlyDoc 449" visit some Central Queensland Airports for the first time ever over the last week.

VH-FDF is one of three new Beech / Textron Aviation B300C Super King Air turboprops that the RFDS has acquired - along with VH-FDC and VH-FDN.  VH-FDN "FlyDoc 493" has recently been spotted also making its first visit around several CQ Airports - see Blog post HERE.

VH-FDF was delivered to the RFDS Base in Cairns in September 2015 (as shown above).  It appears that VH-FDF has spent some time in the hangar before operating mostly out of Cairns and Townsville.  It recently flew to Brisbane where it seems to be operating from.

VH-FDF is believed to have made its first visit to CQ on Wednesday 14 December when it visited both Roma and Blackall Airports, flying in from Brisbane via the Brisbane West Wellcamp Airport.  On Thursday 15 December, VH-FDF then visited Hervey Bay (Fraser Coast) and Bundaberg Airports from Brisbane and on Saturday 17 December, it arrived at Rockhampton Airport from Townsville before later departing to Brisbane.
