A Few Other Plane Spotting Photos from Gladstone Airport Over the Last Week

Overall, it has been a relatively quiet week for plane spotting at Gladstone Airport over the last week, although local spotters Jamie C and Tash C have still managed to capture some great photos of some of the action.

Shadforth's Plant Hire Raytheon (Beech) C90A (C90B King Air) VH-JEO popped into Gladstone twice over the course of Wednesday 15 January and Thursday 16 January.  It passed through Gladstone on its way North to Mackay.

Also on Thursday 16 January, Avcair (Sutherland Aviation) Raytheon B300 Super King Air VH-WXC popped into Gladstone.  Its exacts movements are unclear.

An interesting visitor on Sunday 19 January was Norfolk Island-based Cirrus SR22 VH-PNB which was captured departing for parts unknown.

Several helicopters were also spotted last week, with three spotted at Gladstone Airport also on Thursday 16 January, including Townsville Helicopters Robinson R-44 VH-EUC passing through.

Bell 206 VH-FYH - showing as being operated by Stirling Consolidated - was also spotted at Gladstone on Thursday 16 January.

Meanwhile, locally-based CareFlight Queensland Bell 412EP VH-XCY was captured departing Gladstone Airport later on Thursday 16 January.

Finally, some of the commercial action at Gladstone Airport included QantasLink (Cobham Aviation) Boeing B717-200 VH-NXK, which was captured visiting on Thursday 16 January.

And QantasLink Dash-8-Q400 VH-QOI - which still wears its bright 'Destination Tamworth' - Tamworth Country Music Festival colours - was captured making a spectacular departure shortly before sunset on Thursday 16 January as well.

Some great photos from Jamie and Tash, and we sincerely thank them for sending through their fantastic photos!
