On Sunday 15 March, Babcock Offshore Services (ex CHC Helicopters Australia) Agusta AW139 helicopter VH-WEJ was noted arriving into Charleville Airport from Redcliffe while appearing to be on a ferry flight back in Western Australia following planned maintenance.
It then departed heading to Birdsville but developed a maintenance issue and returned to Charleville Airport where it was photographed parked up at the start of the week.
Then on Tuesday 17 March, VH-WEJ was then able to depart Charleville Airport and continue to Birdsville.
UPDATE! On Wednesday 18 March, VH-WEJ continued to Alice Springs, Ayres Rock, Wharburton, Newman and Karratha where it appears to be based.
Of interest, the now all-white VH-WEJ has only this month been re-registered to Babcock Offshore Services Australasia after it previously operated with CHC Helicopters Australia.
