Pel-Air (Navy Support) IAI Westwind 1124 VH-KNS at Bundaberg Airport - Along with AS350 Squirrel Helicopter N22-001

Brisbane-based plane spotter Brendan B drove into Bundaberg on Wednesday 25 March and drove past Bundaberg Airport just in time to capture a couple of photos of an interesting visitor in the form of Pel-Air Aviation (Royal Australian Navy Fleet Support) IAI Westwind 1124 bizjet VH-KNS.

It appears that the Westwind may have been in town in support of the parked RAN Aerospatiale AS350 Squirrel helicopters N22-001 (Code 801).  It appears that the Squirrel may have gone unserviceable.

Meanwhile, the Westwind looked to have called in from its base as HMAS Albatross at Nowra in New South Wales.  It departed to the North.

VH-KNS was heard to be using the callsign of "Sentry 23".

Thanks to Brendan for capturing these great photos of a couple of great visitors to the rum city!
