Clermont Aerodrome Fly-In Fly-Out (FIFO) Movements on Wednesday

A somewhat busy afternoon and evening at Clermont Aerodrome on Wednesday 23 November.

Arriving just after 4pm was Raytheon B300 Super King Air VH-WXC.

This very attractive looking aircraft is operated by Coastwings / Sutherland Aviation in Brisbane. It has been noted operating fly-in fly-out (FIFO) charter flights throughout central Queensland in recent weeks.

The colour scheme is very distinctive, and is from the aircraft's former operator Titan Airways of Great Britain.

Later AeroComander 500-S VH-JPO - which is registered in New South Wales - arrived.

These two aircraft seemed to wait for the arrival of Skytrans Dash-8-100 VH-QQJ, which touched down at about 5pm.

This FIFO charter is operated for a different company to the usual flights we see at Clermont. This Wednesday afternoon arrival seems to occur every second week, and is believed to operate from the Sunshine Coast Airport to Clermont and return.

Later in the evening, Skytrans Dash-8-100 VH-QQH operated the 'usual' Wednesday night FIFO charter from and back to Brisbane.
