Aerorescue (AMSA) Dornier 328-100 VH-PPV "Rescue 441" Also at Mackay Airport Last Weekend

Last Sunday 16 August - and while the Mackay Aero Club's Wings and Wheels Day was well and truly underway - Aerorescue (AMSA - Australian Maritime Safety Authority) / Aero Pearl Dornier 328-100 VH-PPV "Rescue 441" was captured visiting Mackay Airport.

It was believed to have been tasked on a possible search and rescue mission off the coast around the Whitsundays.

After landing for a couple of hours and taking on fuel, VH-PPV departed back to its Cairns base.

Of interest, VH-PPV was also tasked to perform a search off Hamilton Island in the Whitsundays on Wednesday 19 August but looked to return to Cairns rather than land at Mackay.

Thanks to 'AC' for capturing and sending through these great photos!
