Meanwhile at Rockhampton Airport - Virgin Australia (Pacific Blue) Embraer E-190 VH-ZPM - Winch Training for Capricorn Rescue

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!
