Skytrans Dash-8 first visit to Clermont Aerodrome

A busy night at Clermont Aerodrome on Thursday 29 July, with three FIFO arrivals, a FIFO departure, and rescue training for the local auxiliary fire brigade.

Central Airlines (CHAT) Piper PA-31 VH-BCQ (pictured below) flew in from Mackay and overnighted. 

Skytrans Airlines Dash-8 VH-QQE, pictured below still wearing the company's old livery, arrived and departed to Brisbane as SKP868/SKP869. 

Finally, Skytrans Airlines Dash-8 VH-QQD, wearing PDL TOLL titles and livery, arrived from Brisbane as SKP870 and overnighted.  This aircraft has, until recently, been operating from Darwin, and has been rarely seen in Queensland.  It is pictured on the Clermont Aerodrome apron waiting for its parking spot, and then in its parking spot with VH-QQE departing behind it.

After all the passengers and bags had been removed, the local auxiliary fire brigade had a closer look at both the outside and inside of the plane as a part of their rescue training.
