Air Cruising Australia Dash-8 is the Highlight of a Busy Morning at Clermont Aerodrome on Friday

On a crisp clear morning on Friday 29 April, there was no less than five aircraft parked at Clermont Aerodrome after arriving the previous day. Visiting aircraft included:

Tecnam P-92 Super Echo ultralight aircraft - registered 24-5240..

Cessna 414A VH-SMX which is registered to Shadforth's Civil Engineering Contractors on the Sunshine Coast..

Meanwhile, FIFO charters were operated by:

Advance Aviation's Piper PA-31 VH-BCQ is pictured prior to departing for Mackay..

Skytrans Airlines Dash-8-100 VH-QQH is pictured ready for its passengers to board for their flight to Brisbane..

But the highlight of the morning was Skytrans Airlines Dash-8-100 VH-QQA - which has recently been operating charters on behalf of Aircruising Australia - Bill Peach Adventures - and as a result, has been painted in those colours and titles.

Before this, VH-QQA was flying in Western Australia for Maroomba Airlines, and flew cross-country back to Skytrans Airlines in Cairns about a month ago. I was fortunate enough to photograph VH-QQE in Clermont in February before it ventured over to Western Australia to replace VH-QQA at Maroomba Airlines.

What a great morning's spotting!
