ZK-HDA touched down at Rocky from Archerfield.
After taking on fuel, ZK-HDA later departed to Townsville - where it was spotted below on approach to Townsville Airport by local plane spotter Leroy.
As you know, I love a bit of history of airframes and ZK-HDA (c/n 31458) has had an interesting one! It was originally registered in late 2012 as G-EUDO with CHC Helicopters before moving to Canada also with CHC registered as C-GUFI.
In 2014, it was noted to be flying for the Nigerian-based Atlantic Aviation as 5N-BQA (as shown) which, with technical support provide dby CHC Helicopters, operated crew-rotation transportation flights from Murtala Muhammad Airport in Lagos to the Shell-operated Deepwater Discovery Drill Ship in the Gulf of Guinea.
At the start of December 2016, 5N-BQA was noted arriving in New Zealand by ship and trucked to New Plymouth soon after. After being registered ZK-HDA, it appears that the helicopter was shipped into Brisbane before being seen at Archerfield Airport.
