Emerald Airport Runway and Taxiway Resurfacing Project Commences

Pre-construction works began at Emerald Airport in late September as the Central Highlands Regional Council (CHRC) prepares to resurface the main runway, taxiway and apron bays as part of a $16 million capital investment.



CHRC Mayor Kerry Hayes said the main runway's existing asphalt surface was almost 20 years old and approaching the end of its functional life.

The construction phase for the resurfacing was expected to take around three months and would involve night works.



The entire program also includes a $3 million upgrade to the general aviation area, which will commence at the same time and is expected to be completed by February 2020.  These works will involve reconstructing the general and eastern aviation apron, and the refuelling area, in addition to widening the taxiway apron.

The works are jointly funded by the Australian Government, and through the Queensland Government's Building our Regions program, in association with Central Highlands Regional Council.

Alliance Airlines Fokker F-70 VH-NUU 'Pink Lady' (Finally) Calls into CQ Airports Operating for Virgin Australia Airlines

On Friday 4 October, and just over a month after entering service, Alliance Airlines Fokker F-70 jet VH-NUU finally operated flights into Central Queensland Airports on behalf of Virgin Australia Airlines.


It was first noted flying into Gladstone Airport operating the VOZ2905/2904 service from and back to Brisbane before it was then photographed above at Bundaberg Airport soon after arriving also from Brisbane but as VOZ2973.  It later returned to the capital as VOZ2972.

As this post is being written, VH-NUU has just landed back to Brisbane from Emerald Airport where it looked to complete the scheduled VOZ1265/1266 service from and back to Brisbane also on behalf of Virgin Australia Airlines.

As we posted below, VH-NUU looked to complete its first 'commercial' flight for Alliance Airlines back on Monday 3 September when it completed the weekly UTY4078/4079 Fly-in Fly-out (FIFO) charter flight into Emerald Airport from and back to Brisbane via the Sunshine Coast.

As can be seen and as mentioned, Alliance Airlines is continuing its partnership with Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA) by operating this specially themed Fokker F-70 VH-NUU in full BCNA colours - supporting Australians affected by breast cancer.  The distinctively coloured F-70 named 'Pink Lady' has been designed by Lila Design in Tilburg, The Netherlands (EU).

VH-NUU will surely attract some attention during its work flying around regional Australia.  More about BCNA at:  http://www.bcna.org.au

Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) (Cobham SAR Services Pty Ltd) Bombardier Challenger 604 Bizjet VH-XNE Pops into Mackay Airport

On Thursday 3 September, Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) (Cobham SAR Services Pty Ltd) Bombardier CL-600-2B16 Challenger 604 bizjet VH-XNE was spotted on the ground at Mackay Airport.


It looked to call into Mackay Airport at the completion of a flight from Cairns which lasted just over three hours and took the Challenger over Palm Island and then to a position inland from Mackay.  VH-XNE appeared to be using its registration as its radio callsign rather than the usual "Rescue" callsign.

After almost an hour on the ground, VH-XNE returned directly to Cairns.

As we've previously reported, Cobham SAR Services Pty Ltd (Cobham) was contracted in 2014 to provide a new new search and rescue agreement for AMSA using four Bombardier Challenger CL-604 bizjets from late 2016 for a period of 12 years.
