The Second Virgin Australia / Skywest Airlines ATR 72-500 Pops into Gladstone Airport and Bundaberg Airshow
The second Virgin Australia / Skywest Airlines ATR 72-500, VH-FVI, which was only delivered last week was noted flying into Gladstone Airport on Sunday 28 August.
Meanwhile, at the Wide Bay International Airshow at Bundaberg Airport last weekend, sistership ATR 72-500 VH-FVH was one of the star attractions.
A sleek little bizjet in the form of Embraer 500 Phenom 100 VH-PNM was also noted, along with the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Roulettes who performed over the weekend before departing for Hamilton Island later during the weekend.
The RAAF also had a Beech 350 Super King Air on display, as well as a new Boeing F/A-18F Super Hornet, which flew up from Amberley and then returned without landing / stopping at Bundaberg.
Finally, there were several warbirds and antique aircraft on show.
Of course with Bundaberg being an RPT destination for QantasLink (Sunstate Airlines), Dash-8-Q400 VH-QOV was noted departing for Brisbane during the Airshow.
