VH-ESZ had flown South to Archerfield via Rockhampton Airport for planned maintenance in May this year - as shown above.
As we have reported previously, this 'rotational system' of airframes that QGAir utilises ensure the even distribution of flying hours on each of the their 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 South in the coming days.
