Even though there has been much excitement at Gladstone Airport over the last few days, there is still much happening at other airports in Central Queensland, and a late afternoon visit to Rockhampton Airport by local plane spotter Travis W on Monday 23 December yielding some great plane spotting photos!
Virgin Australia Embraer E-190 VH-ZPM touched down as VOZ1245 from Brisbane.
VH-ZPM is a rather unique aircraft now as it is the last Embraer to wear the red colours and titles of Pacific Blue. It has also recently acquired a white panel on its under-side!
Meanwhile, outside the Capricorn Helicopter Rescue Service (CHRS) hangar, there were numerous winching exercises and training occurring.
The CHRS Bell 412EP helicopter VH-EPR was involved.
Thanks to Travis for sending through these great photos!
