Also, Eurocopter EC130B4 registered VH-BPD is pictured taxiing to the GA area where it parked for the night. The chopper is registered in Newcastle.

In other news, Jayrow Helicopters - which is based in Darwin, but has a small base in Rockhampton - has been put into administration and is up for sale.

Jayrow Helicopters provides the Sikorsky S-76A Helicopter that the Capricorn Helicopter Rescue Service operates out of Rockhampton Airport. VH-JRD is pictured last year arriving at Rockhampton Airport. Their future is uncertain.
