Meanwhile, completing a ferry flight to Rockhampton Airport also via Longreach and Emerald Airports on Friday 16 October was Australian Helicopters Bell 412EP VH-PXY.
I spotted VH-PXY sitting outside the locally-based Capricorn Helicopter Rescue Service (CHRS) while it was on 'stand-by' for the fellow Australian Helicopters operated CHRS Bell 412EP VH-EPR while it undergoes some planned maintenance.
UPDATE! VH-PXY ferried South from Rockhampton to Redcliffe via Bundaberg early on Monday 19 October. It appears that yet another Australian Helicopters operated Bell 412 VH-LSY has ferried into Rockhampton Airport and is now on 'stand-by' for the CHRS Bell 412EP VH-EPR.
