New Virgin Australia / Skywest Airlines ATR 72-600 VH-FVQ Spotted at Rockhampton Airport

Braving some yet more inclement weather, Rockhampton plane spotter 'IAD' ventured to Rockhampton Airport on Saturday 9 March and managed to capture a couple of lovely images of Virgin Australia (Skywest Airlines) ATR 72-600 VH-FVQ.

VH-FVQ is one of two ATR 72-600 aircraft (the other is VH-FVR) that entered service for Virgin Australia last week.

'IAD' was also fortunate enough to capture sister-ship VH-FVN as it passed through Rockhampton Airport as well.

Lastly, a nice aircraft also captured at Rockhampton Airport on Saturday 9 March was Skytrans Dash-8-100 VH-QQK which touched down on a charter flight from Cairns, and joined the two ATRs on the Airport apron.

Incidentally, on Friday 8 March, 'IAD' was at the Rockhampton Airport and captured Virgin Australia Embraer E-190 VH-ZPO as it departed for the South.

Lastly, also spotted was the Whitsunday Helicopter Group Bell 206B (III) VH-SWI, which is now looking resplendent in a new all-over red colour scheme to match the Whitsunday Helicopter Groups pair of Aerospatiale AS.350BA Squirrel choppers.

Great coverage as usual - thanks mate!
