Pictured below is Blackwater Airport showing the terminal and apron area. Plane spotting and photography over the apron is easy from the fenceline.
On Sunday 15 August, QantasLink (Sunstate Airlines) Dash-8-Q300 VH-SBI operated the final RPT flight to Blackwater. It operated inbound as QF2396 Brisbane-Thangool-Blackwater, and departed as QF2397 back through Thangool to Brisbane. The QantasLink terminal departure board is shown below commemorating this final service.
As previously reported, BHP is closing Blackwater Airport as an RPT airport. It will remain open to charter and medical aircraft however.
