This beautiful Nanchang CJ-6 warbird VH-WOA of Warbirds over Whitsundays was spotted near the Rockhampton Aero Club at Rockhampton Airport last Thursday 3 October while it was on a flight from its Whitsunday Airport base at Shute Harbour / Airlie Beach to Archerfield in the South-East corner.
Aero Club Secretary, Paul T captured some great photos of the Nanchang as it stopped in for fuel at Rockhampton. The old warbird was even fitted out with a modern glass cockpit!
Thanks to Paul for sending through these great photos!
Incidentally, Paul has also sent through notification that The Rockhampton Aero Club's Chief Flying Instructor (Lesley Crowther-Scott) will be running a Private Pilots Licence (PPL) Theory Course over
