New South Wales National Parks and Wildlife Cessna 208B VH-TFV "Park Air 6" at Central Queensland Airport

Making what appears to possibly be an annual flight into Central and North-West Queensland on Wednesday 2 October was the New South Wales National Parks and Wildlife Textron Aviation (Cessna) 208B Caravan VH-TFV "Park Air 6".

It looked to initially fly at low level up from the Sunshine Coast to Gladstone Airport via airwork around Bundaberg and Hervey Bay.  After a stop at Gladstone Airport, VH-TFV looked to continue North and landed at Proserpine (Whitsunday Coast) Airport.

Of interest, VH-TFV has only recently been registered to New South Wales National Parks and Wildlife (New South Wales State Government) and replaces fellow Cessna 208 Caravan VH-TWX which visited CQ last year - as pictured below.

UPDATE!  Over the course of the rest of the week, it appears that VH-TFV "Park Air 6" continued out to Mount Isa with it noted arriving there on Thursday 3 October and departing back towards the coast on Friday 4 October.  On Sunday 6 October, VH-TFV passed through Rockhampton Airport and appeared to be returning to New South Wales.
