A very special post with local photographer Russell P again very generously allowing us to share some of his spectacular photos. This time, he ventured to Rockhampton Airport around dusk on Wednesday 30 January and captured many photos of evening's arrivals onto Runway 15.
The evening started with Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) Hawker Beechcraft B200 King Air VH-FDI "FlyDoc 467" arriving back on a medical transfer flight from Baralaba.
Then QantasLink Dash-8-Q400 VH-QOI touched down from Brisbane as QLK2368.
While fellow QantasLink Dash-8-Q400 VH-QOU touched down from Mackay as QLK2309.
Then the two evening freighters touched down at Rockhampton Airport with Toll Freight Aviation / Toll Express Metro 23 VH-HPE arriving as TFX129 from Mount Isa.
And Pel-Air Aviation SAAB 340A Freighter VH-KDB arriving from Mackay as PFY7415.
Sincere thanks Russell for taking the time to capture and send through these stunning photos! Enjoy!
