Meanwhile - Spotted at Hervey Bay / Fraser Coast Airport This Week

The Fraser Coast region of (Central) Queensland is becoming quite a popular and thus busy place for aviation news and movements - and last week was no exception with quite a number of interesting light General Aviation (GA) aircraft calling into Bundaberg Airport (see Blog post below) and also the Hervey Bay / Fraser Coast Airport.

TW Aviation (of Tamworth) Cessna 414A VH-ZDF was noted calling into Hervey Bay from Bathurst on Thursday 25 June.  After a couple of hours, it departed to the Sunshine Coast and Ballina/Byron Gateway, before returning to Bathurst.

Also on Thursday, Cessna 206 VH-ITV visited from Redcliffe.

On Friday 26 June, Maroochy Air Cessna 182 VH-TOE operated from Hervey Bay to Archerfield, Tara and back to Hervey Bay.  Seair (Istlecote) Cessna 208 Carvan VH-LMD was noted arriving early from the Gold Coast.  It then looked to operate a flight to Lady Elliot Island before returning to the Gold Coast later in the day.

Also visiting from the Gold Coast on Friday 26 June was Australian Wings (Flying) Academy Diamond Aircraft Industries DA40-D VH-YHM.  These little Diamonds make frequent visits to Hervey Bay as a part of their pilot training flights.

Finally, and also on pilot training flights, Becker Helicopter Services Bell 206s VH-NXW and VH-WCF were noted calling into Hervey Bay Airport on Tuesday 23 June, calling in from the Sunshine Coast.
