The visiting aircraft were (as expected) dominated by Seair / Istlecote aircraft which operate daily into Lady Elliot Island from the South-East corner of Queensland - Gold Coast, Brisbane and Redcliffe - along with destinations on the Fraser Coast - Bundaberg, Hervey Bay and occasionally, Maryborough.
Cessna 208 Caravans VH-LMD and VH-LMZ were joined by Seair's latest acquisition, fellow Cessna 208 VH-TQW, which has until recently, operated in country New South Wales.
Seair's Pilatus Britten-Norman BN2A Islander VH-RUT and Cessna T210M VH-SDU was also spotted by David, while he reports he missed another Islander VH-MBF.
The helicopter requiring attention was Gold Coast-based Eurocopter AS.350B3 Squirrel VH-MDQ.
The squirrel is flown by a very well known former sports world champion.
Also spotted by David at Lady Elliot Island was Aerospatiale AS.355F1 VH-HRU of McDermott Aviation.
Some stunning photos from a stunning location off the Fraser Coast!
