Queensland Government Aircraft Visit Flood-hit Areas Surrounding Biloela

Devastating flooding has hit parts of Central Queensland including in the town of Jambin, which is South of Rockhampton, West of Gladstone and near Biloela.  As a result, the Queensland Government Airwing (State of Queensland) Raytheon Hawker 850XP bizjet VH-SGY and Raytheon B300 Super King Air VH-SGQ have both visited Biloela / Thangool Airport over the course of Monday 23 February and Tuesday 24 February.

VH-SGY called in for most of the day on Monday, while VH-SGQ called in from another flood-hit town, Gympie.  Both aircraft departed back to Brisbane.

Meanwhile, a couple of other light General Aviation (GA) aircraft have been noted calling into Bilo with Edwards Coaches Cessna 441 VH-OXY calling in from Moura on Tuesday 24 February.  Also it is believed that a pair of Basair Australia Piper PA-28-161 Cherokees VH-LXQ and VH-LXJ called in from the South-East corner also on Tuesday.
