Also at Rockhampton Airport on Thursday!

As well as Ben O spotting the Australian Army Kiowas helicopters earlier in the day, there were a couple of other nice choppers that were noted on Thursday 29 March.

Pacific Crown Helicopters of Caloundra, Aerospatiale AS.350B1 VH-FBQ was noted parked near the General Aviation Apron.

A little later, another Squirrel, in the form of Whitsunday Helicopters (Helicopter Flight Centre) Aerospatiale AS.350BA VH-HBZ also arrived and parked.

There were also several Royal Flying Doctor Service of Australia (RFDS) movements, with King Airs VH-FDI, VH-FDR, and VH-FDA all noted on the local RFDS parking apron.

Meanwhile, on the commercial front at Rockhampton Airport on Thursday afternoon, QantasLink (Sunstate Airlines) Dash-8-Q400s VH-QOY and VH-QOJ were noted flying both North and South.

Alliance Airlines Fokker F-100 VH-XWR was noted also flying for QantasLink on a scheduled service to Brisbane.

Incidentally, VH-XWR was noted earlier in the day operating a fly-in fly-out (FIFO) charter from Cairns to Emerald to Brisbane as UTY2239/2241. Another F-100 in the form of VH-FKF also flew a FIFO charter to Emerald as UTY7656/7657 from Brisbane.

Lastly, Virgin Australia Embraer E-190 VH-ZPJ is pictured departing to Brisbane.
