Skytrans Dash-8-100 VH-QQG Visits Rockhampton Airport on Saturday

Noted arriving into Rockhampton Airport during the afternoon on Saturday 27 August was Skytrans Airlines Dash-8-100 VH-QQG.  It touched down from Cairns as SKP9003.

It appears that it may have transported players and support staff of the Cairns-based Northern Pride Rugby League team who had a hard fought win against the Rockhampton-based Central Capras in the Queensland Rugby League's Instrust Super Cup.

After the sun had set, VH-QQG returned North to Townsville and then Cairns as SKP9004/9005.

Meanwhile, a couple of interesting light General Aviation (GA) visitors to Rockhampton Airport over the last couple of days included Henty Aviation Cessna 425 VH-BSM which visited on Saturday 27 August.  Its exact movements are not known but I believe it is the second time in a few days that it has visited Rocky with it reportedly also visiting the beef capital on Thursday 25 August.

And Toowoomba-based Piper PA-31-350 Navajo VH-TTX called in once again from Toowoomba on Friday 26 August before departing to Bowen Airport.  It looked to return to Rocky from Bowen a little while later.
