Nice American Registered Eurocopter EC-130B-4 Helicopter N716LY Pops into Gladstone and Shute Harbour Airports

On Tuesday 21 August, American-registered Eurocopter EC-130B-4 helicopter N716LY was noted flying into Gladstone Airport.  It arrived from Redcliffe where it appears to have been based for some time.

After taking on fuel, it appears that N716LY flew up to the Whitsunday Airport at Shute Harbour.

The smart looking helicopter has recently been spotted completing test flights around Redcliffe and was noted arriving into there from Gladstone in July 2017.

N716LY is registered to DV International Aviation at Grand Rapids, Michigan in the United States however has also been noted operating in New Zealand on occasion over the last couple of years.
