Blue Sky Airways (NSW) Cessna 208B Caravan VH-IOV Spotted Departing Rockhampton Airport

On Sunday 13 May, Cessna 208B Caravan VH-IOV called into Rockhampton Airport.  It arrived from the Gold Coast via stops at Cessnock (New South Wales) and Biloela / Thangool Airports.  After a short time on the ground, VH-IOV was spotted departing Rockhampton Airport for the Gold Coast, although it was noted to complete a missed approach at Gladstone Airport on the way down.

The latest Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) register update indicates that VH-IOV is registered to Blue Sky Airways in New South Wales.  It was interesting to note however, that the pilot kept referring to the aircraft by a different aircraft registration which is currently operated by Seair Pacific / Istlecote on the Gold Coast.  Perhaps this is a new aircraft for the Seair?

Meanwhile, earlier on Sunday 13 May, another Cessna 208B Caravan in the form of VH-DJG was noted visiting Rockhampton Airport once again.  It called into Rocky for a short time from Archerfield.  Over the last week with Beef Australia 2018 being held at the Rockhampton Showgrounds, VH-DJG was a common visitor being noted on a couple of other occasions visiting Rockhampton Airport.
