A Couple of Plane Spotting Photos from Rockhampton Airport

Rockhampton plane spotters Don W and 'IAD' have again been enjoying their favourite past-time at Rockhampton Airport over the last couple of days, and judging by some of their photos, they have been enjoying a wide variety of movements.

Piper PA-46-350P Malibu VH-ZMM of Just Country Australia, arrived into Rockhampton on Thursday 28 March from Archerfield.  VH-ZMM departed Rockhampton on Saturday 30 March, and was noted at Mackay, Bowen and back at Rockhampton several times over the weekend.  'IAD' captured VH-ZMM as it departed Rockhampton for Mackay on Sunday 31 March.

On Tuesday 2 April, VH-ZMM departed back to Archerfield.  Don W caught VH-ZMM parked on the General Avaition apron at Rockhampton Airport.

Also on Tuesday 2 April, a popular bizjet to visit Central Queensland, in the form of the Queensland Police Service (Airwing) Cessna 560 Citation Ultra VH-PSU arrived into Rockhampton from Brisbane.  It eventually continued North, ending the day in Cairns.  On Wednesday 3 April, 'IAD' was on hand to catch VH-PSU as it returned down the coast, arriving at Rockhampton from Proserpine / Whitsunday Coast Airport.

While he was at Rockhampton Airport on Wednesday 3 April, 'IAD' spotted the new Gladstone-based Careflight Bell 412EP VH-XCY which was visiting the beef city for part of the day.

Also Virgin Australia Embraer E-190 VH-ZPR was photographed as it departed Rockhampton for Sydney as VOZ1568. As reported last week, Virgin is cutting their Rockhampton direct to Sydney service from the end of this month.
