Bundaberg Airport Tuesday - REX SAAB 340 VH-ZLO - PNG BK-117 Choppers - Citation Bizjet VH-CCJ

Regional Express (REX) SAAB 340 VH-ZLO was noted visiting Bundaberg Airport on Tuesday 17 November on what looked to be a charter flight operated on behalf Pel-Air Aviation.

The SAAB called in early from Brisbane on Tuesday as PFY9284 and departed around sunset back to Brisbane as PFY9285.

Also calling into Bundy early on Tuesday 17 November was - as mentioned below - Earth Commodities Cessna 550 Citation Bravo bizjet VH-CCJ which touched down from Gladstone.  VH-CCJ departed back to Brisbane around the middle of the day.

And also mentioned below was the pair of Papua New Guinea registered Kawasaki BK117B-2 helicopters P2-HBQ and P2-HBK which also were believed to have called into Bundaberg Airport on Tuesday 17 November from Rockhampton.

Both choppers look to be (or have been) operated by Heli-Niugini and were believed to have continued further South from Bundy.

One final interesting light visitor to the Rum City on Tuesday 17 November was Cessna 172 VH-RYC of the Murwillumbah Aero Club.  The little Cessna looks to have been on a fairly big adventure with it noted at the Whitsunday Airport at Shute Harbour over the weekend, and then departing Cairns for Townsville and Mackay earlier on Tuesday before it called into Bundaberg.  From Bundaberg, VH-RYC was scheduled to continue home to Murwillumbah.

Finally, it appears that Careflight Agusta A109E VH-ZCF is still based at Bundaberg Airport with "Rescue 522" operating a med-evac flight to Hervey Bay Hospital on Monday 16 November.
