A Quick Plane Spotting Trip to Bundaberg Airport on Sunday

Rockhampton-based plane spotter, 'IAD' ventured to Bundaberg on Sunday 19 May, and of course, popped into Bundaberg Airport for a look around!

First look at the photos show the terminal area to be still the same as when we visited in January this year, however, there is now prominent Virgin Australia signage given that the airline now services Bundaberg daily with Virgin Australia Regional Airlines-operated ATR 72 turbo-prop aircraft

During his quick look around Bundaberg Airport, 'IAD' photographed the ever-present lovely old Beech E18-S VH-CIJ.

Another locally-based aircraft in the form Cessna 310K VH-CKB was also spotted parked on the General Aviation apron.

Also photographed by 'IAD' - and much to his delight - was the Bundaberg-based AGL Action Helicopter Rescue Service Kawasaki BK117 B-2 helicopter VH-BKV.

Other medical evacuation services at Bundaberg include a Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) hangar.  'IAD' photographed RFDS Hawker Beechcraft B200 King Air VH-FDI parked in front of the hangar as it waited between missions.

Later on Sunday 19 May, 'IAD' spotted Virgin Australia Regional Airlines ATR 72-600 VH-FVP as it operated Virgin's scheduled VOZ1701/1702 return service from and back to Brisbane.

And lastly, QantasLink Dash-8-Q400 was photographed by 'IAD' as it prepared for, and then departed Bundaberg for Brisbane, operating the scheduled QLK2321 service.

Sincere thanks to 'IAD' for sending through these great photos from the Rum city.
