Some Weekend Spottings From Mackay Airport

I spent a weekend in Mackay for cricket and managed to get to Mackay Airport on Sunday 30 October for a quick look at some interesting aircraft parked around the airport.

As I drove to the Airport on Bridge Road I managed to pull up in time to see Surveillance Australia (Australian Customs Service) Dash-8-Q300 VH-ZZN depart from Runway 14.

On the Western (terminal) side of the Airport was a recent arrival in the form of Cessna 525A Citation CJ2 VH-ZGP. This aircraft has only been in Australia for about a month and is registered in Mackay.

Nearby was Pilatus PC-12/45 VH-YDO.

And a nice pair of Toll Express Metro freighters - VH-UZP (in front in new colours) and VH-UZD (old colours behind).

Elsewhere at the airport was Nixon Communication's Cessna 150 VH-RXJ.

Aeropower's Eurocopter AS.350B2 VH-SHD.

And Aviation Tourism Australia's Bell 430 VH-HIA (with Bell 206 VH-COW behind).

Lastly, Adam P spotted Australian Army Sikorsky S-70A-9 Blackhawk helicopter A25-111 at the Airport on Saturday 29 October and sent through a photo of it on the ground.
