VH-EGK has been operating out of Cairns Airport in recent weeks as "Rescue 510" and has seemingly ferried South to Archerfield to complete planned maintenance.
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.
It will be interesting to see if another QGAir Rescue helicopter ferries North to replace VH-EGK.
