A Couple of King Airs at Bundaberg Airport on Wednesday - Incl RAAF A32-651 "Envoy 46"

On Wednesday 1 June, Deputy Prime Minister and Federal National Party leader Barnaby Joyce was spotted arriving into Bundaberg Airport on board Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Beech B350 Super King Air A32-651.  

Local plane spotter Micah S was on hand captured a couple of great photos as the Super King Air was parked and awaited its next flight.  It arrived from Lismore as "Envoy 46".

I personally like the additional 'Dingo Airlines' titles that the Super King Air wears in recognition of its service with the RAAF's No. 38 Squadron based at Townsville.

Eventually, A32-651 departed Bundy for Gympie where it appeared to be staying for the night.

Another King Air visiting Bundaberg Airport on Wednesday 1 June was Great Western Aviation (Brisbane) Beech B200 King Air VH-XGV.  It arrived from Brisbane.

Later, VH-XGV also departed to Gympie so I assume was related to the visit of Mr Joyce(?).

Micah also sends through a couple of photos of a couple of other light General Aviation (GA) visitors to Bundaberg Airport on Wednesday 1 June including Mackay-based Cessna TR182 VH-LXW and Air Queensland (Redcliffe) Tecnam P2008 24-8398.

Finally, on Tuesday 31 May, it's worth noting that General Aviation Maintenance (GAM) Dornier DO 228-202 VH-VJD operated the weekday freight run to the Fraser Coast flying flew from Brisbane to Gayndah via Maryborough and Bundaberg and then back later that evening.  

And Victoria-based Interair / Photomapping Services Cessna 404 VH-TTZ - which has been operating several aerial survey flights over the region of late - departed Bundaberg Airport for Cairns also on Tuesday 31 May.

Sincere thanks to Micah for taking the time to capture and send through these great photos!
