A Few Other Lighties at Fraser Coast Airports so far This Week

On Wednesday 7 January, Regional Express (REX) SAAB 340B VH-ZRY was noted passing through Maryborough Airport.  As we posted below, the SAAB was carrying Queensland Premier Campbell Newman and his entourage as the Queensland state election campaign started.

This was one of a few interesting movements into the Fraser Coast region over the last couple of days.

Also noted visiting Maryborough on Wednesday - and on Monday 5 January as well - was the Queensland Police Service (Airwing) Raytheon B1900D VH-PSK which - as usual - has had a couple of busy days of flying, calling into several other airports in CQ.

Also, Air Gold Coast Beech 76 Duchess VH-ZUA has made a couple of visits, while locally-based Beech A36 Bonanza VH-KEY returned home from Noosa.

At Bundaberg Airport on Wednesday 7 January, three aircraft from the Royal Queensland Aero Club (Airline Academy of Australia) visited Bundy - and specifically the Hinkler Hall of Aviation - for the day from their Archerfield base.  Cessna 206 VH-NCR was joined by Tecnam P2006T VH-OWW and Tecnam P2008 Light Sport Aircraft (LSA) VH-IBO, with the three lighties travelling pretty much together.

Also on Wednesday 7 January, Seair (Istlecote) Pilatus Britten-Norman BN2A-8 Islander VH-MBF called into Bundy from the the Gold Coast and Redcliffe before continuing to Lady Elliot Island.  Brisbane-based Cessna 206 VH-ASJ also called in.

It's also worth mentioning that in Bundaberg, General Aviation Maintenance (GAM) AeroCommander 500-S aircraft VH-UJU has been operating the week-daily freight run through Bundy, Maryborough and Gayndah.

Finally, at Hervey Bay (Fraser Coast) Airport, Mooney M20K VH-YRJ, Cessna 182 VH-KKV, Piper PA-28R-180 Cherokee Arrow VH-JPW  and Cirrus SR20 VH-SRL all called in this week amongst the usual QantasLink and Virgin Australia commercial movements.
