Beech B200GT King Air VH-NMW at Maryborough Airport - Plus more!

Sydney-based Auscott Beechcraft B200GT King Air VH-NMW was noted calling into Maryborough Airport from Brisbane on Saturday 20 December.

It later departed back to Brisbane.  The aircraft usually operates in New South Wales so its visit in Queensland was most welcome.

Also on Saturday 20 December, Seair / Istlecote aircraft - Cessna T210M VH-SDU - was noted arriving into Maryborough from Wanella Station (near Coppabella).  It had earlier passed through Bundaberg before departing to Wanella.  Of interest, VH-SDU has operated into Lady Elliott Island for most of last week.

Meanwhile, at Bundaberg Airport, Sydney-based Beech 76 Duchess VH-DVF made a rare visit into Queensland on Sunday 21 December, this time touching down from Coffs Harbour.  Also on Sunday, the only just re-branded Careflight / Sunshine Coast Helicopter Rescue Service (SCHRS) Kawasaki BK117 B-2 helicopter VH-EHQ was noted at Bundaberg Hospital and Bundaberg Airport.  It was heard to be using the callsign "Rescue 522".

It's also worth noting that another rescue helicopter in the form of Emergency Management Queensland (EMQ) / Queensland Government (State of Queensland) Agusta AW139 helicopter VH-ESZ "Rescue 500" was believed to call into Bundy on Friday 19 November.

Finally, on the lighter side of movements at Bundaberg Airport, Brisbane-based Cessna 414 VH-FCZ departed Bundy for Caloundra on Thursday 18 December.

VH-FCZ had arrived into Bundaberg the previous week and with it also visiting and nearby parts including Biloela / Thangool Airport, I would suggest that this Chancellor is currently operating for Cromair while their Chancellor VH-CBT is undergoing repairs following damage it sustained during a recent serious storm in Brisbane.
