A Couple of Other Notes From Rockhampton Airport - An Update on Re-Construction Work

Rockhampton Airport plane spotter 'IAD' has sent through a couple of photos he took at Rockhampton Airport this week that both tell interesting stories.

The first photo shows the the former Peace Aviation Office - which is the old Ansett-ANA Terminal from the old Connor Park Airport (now Rockhampton Airport) - is finally being slowly torn down.

As we have reported previously, the works are coming as a result of the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) being rumoured to have taken over all of the land from their current facilities and hangar to the General Aviation AVGAS refuelling facilities at Rockhampton Airport.  The RFDS reportedly have plans to construct a new building and hangar facilities on the site - shown in its former glory during 2012.  

There is a push to have as many as four RFDS King Air aircraft based at Rockhampton Airport in the future.

Meanwhile, 'IAD' also noticed that Rockhampton Airport's crossing Runway 04/22 seems to still be closed - or at least operating at a reduced operating lenght - after the recent flooding of the Fitzroy River.

Thanks mate!
