US-Registered 2004 Experimental Lancair Super ES N132BB Also Visits Rockhampton Airport

Seemingly becoming a frequent visitor to CQ - although very briefly this time - is American registered 2004 built Experimental Lancair Super ES N132BB has yet again called into Central Queensland, this time popping into Rockhampton Airport from its Gold Coast base on Sunday 26 June.

On this occasion though, it looked to take on fuel before continuing further North to Cairns.

In one of our previous posts, I noted that the smart little aircraft was recently for sale in the USA.  I have since been advised that N132BB has indeed taken up residence on the Gold Coast and will soon be placed onto the Australia aircraft register.

It also appears that N132BB has also had a new livery applied that is different to the photos previous posted on the CQ Plane Spotting Blog and that were found online!

Meanwhile, a couple of other light General Aviation (GA) aircraft noted coming and going from Rockhampton Airport over past few days included locally-based R-Mach Aviation's smart little Lancair 4 VH-XVP which visited Townsville last Wednesday 22 June.

On Thursday 23 June, Cessna 208 Caravan VH-JOZ visited Rocky from its Toowoomba base..

Amateur-built Van's RV-4 VH-YRV was noted departing Rockhampton Airport for Townsville on Saturday 25 June.  And North Queensland Aero Club Piper PA-28-180 was also noted departing Rocky for Townsville by on Sunday 26 June.

Thanks to Rockhampton plane spotters Kayanne H and Trevor H for taking the time capture these images from their front yards!
