An interesting pre-dawn visitor into Roma Airport on Thursday 3 May was Papua New Guinea-based PNG Air (Cargo) Dash-8-100 P2-MCG.
The attractive Dash-8 arrived into Roma Airport from Cairns and after taking on fuel, it departed to Sydney where it was photographed above resting in the midday sun.
The purpose of the trip is not known, however it appears to be a closed charter with the Dash-8 heard to be flying as "Balus 6130".
Then on Friday 4 May, the PNG Air Dash-8-100 P2-MCG was back in the air, departing Sydney for Roma Airport once again for fuel. It later departed to Cairns. P2-MCG was heard to be flying as "Balus 6131".
What a great visitor!
