Rockhampton Airport Monday - Part Two - South Australian RFDS PC-12 VH-FVF & Mt Isa RFDS King Air VH-FDG

Over the last few days, we've noted a 'different' King Air flying around Central Queensland for the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS).  Early on Monday 30 March, local plane spotter 'IAD' was fortunate enough to capture this particular King Air in the form of (usually) Mount Isa-based Hawker Beechcraft B200 VH-FDG.

VH-FDG usually operates between Cairns and the Cape and out to Mount Isa - indeed it was note wearing 'RFDS Mount Isa' sticker.  It uses the radio callsign of "FlyDoc 456".

Meanwhile, a very interesting and rare RFDS aircraft touched down at Rockhampton Airport on Monday 30 March with South Australian-based Pilatus PC-12/47E VH-FVF calling in directly from Adelaide.

The RFDS Central Section PC-12 looked to be staying for the night at Rocky - and its reasons for visiting the beef capital are unknown at this stage.

Some more great photos from 'IAD' and we again thank him sincerely for sending them through!
