Recent Clermont Aerodrome Action

There has been some interesting aircraft over the last couple of weeks that have graced the skies at Clermont.

Pictured above at Clermont Aerodrome on Friday 14 January, was Skytrans Airlines newest Dash-8-100, VH-QQL, preparing to fly one of the morning's FIFO Mining Charter flights to Brisbane. This was the first time I have noted this aircraft in Clermont - although I believe it has visited previously last year.

On Monday 17 January, RACQ-CQ Rescue Bell 412, VH-BZH, flew into Clermont Hospital from Mackay. It was on the ground for about 5 minutes before being pictured below lifting off from the pad at the Hospital and departing back towards Mackay.

Finally, below are a couple of pictures of the scene at Clermont Aerodrome on Tuesday 25 January, showing Advance Aviation's Piper PA-31 VH-BCQ, which hasn't yet been repainted in this new company's colours, as well as Skytrans Airlines Dash-8-100's VH-QQF and VH-QQJ, all preparing for their FIFO Mining Charter flights to Mackay and Brisbane. Taking a photos like these is quite easy as you can see that you can drive right up to the fenceline at Clermont Aerodrome and see every plane on the airport ramp.
