VH-EZJ was heard to be using the radio callsign of "Rescue 510" suggesting it could ultimately destined for Cairns.
VH-EZJ had ferried South to Archerfield for planned maintenance at the start of August. As we have mentioned previously, this is part of the 'rotational system' the service utilises to ensure the even distribution of flying hours on each of the QGAir Rescue helicopters. This system avoids the need to have multiple helicopters offline for simultaneous scheduled maintenance.
UPDATE! On Thursday 29 August, fellow Queensland Government (QGAir) Rescue (State of Queensland) Leonardo S.P.A. Helicopter (Agusta) AW139 helicopter VH-EGF was noted ferrying South from Townsville to Archerfield via Mackay and Bundaberg Airports - see Blog post above!
