Sunday Spottings at Gladstone Airport - Part 2 - Cap Rescue Bell 412 VH-LSY "Rescue 310" - Qld Police Bolkow BO105 VH-NVI "Polair 41"

Also at Gladstone Airport on Sunday 9 April there was yet more helicopter action - and this time not only just from the three Royal Australian Navy (RAN) NH Industries MRH-90 Multi-Role Helicopters that are presently based at there!

Capricorn Helicopter Rescue Service (CHRS) / Babcock Mission Critical Services Australasia Bell 412 helicopter VH-LSY was spotted calling into Gladstone Airport on at least two separate occasions on Sunday 9 April.

It looked to fly South from Rockhampton Base Hospital and (possibly) complete patient transfer flights to Gladstone Hospital before calling across to the Airport for fuel.

Of interest, VH-LSY was heard to using the radio callsign of "Rescue 310".

Also spotted calling into Gladstone Airport on Sunday 9 April was the Queensland Police Service (Airwing) Eurocopter (Bolkow) BO105 CBS-5 helicopter VH-NVI "Polair 41".

It is believed that it has completed its deployment to Rockhampton and was returning home to the South-East corner.  Indeed after taking on fuel, VH-NVI departed to the South.
