On Saturday 2 June, VH-SGQ was noted returning to Brisbane.
Meanwhile, also spotted at Bowen Airport on Friday 1 June, was Pacific Aerospace PAC750XL VH-ZVM which currently operates as a skydiving platform for 'Skydive the Whitsundays'.
While Mackay-based Cessna 182 VH-JLQ joined locally-based Cessna 172 VH-BNC and an unidentified Jabiru on the light aircraft parking apron also at Bowen Airport.
Finally, on Thursday 31 May, a trio of nice helicopters were spotted parked at the front beach at Bowen with the occupants reportedly popping over to the Grandview Hotel for lunch! They were identified as Lake Macquarie Helicopter (New South Wales) Eurocopter AS.350B2 VH-ICM, Victoria-based Robinson R44 II VH-TWS and Gold Coast-based Aerospatiale AS.350BA VH-XLM.
Sincere thanks to local plane spotter James K for taking the time to capture and send through these great photos!
