Bushfire Fighting Aircraft and Helicopters Spotted at Bundaberg Airport

Local plane spotter Dan B has shared with us some great photos and video from Bundaberg Airport and surrounds in recent days with a nasty grass fire breaking out at Fairymead.

Assisting in the efforts to control and ultimately extinguish the fire were McDermott Aviation Group / Machjet International Aerospatiale AS.355F1 Squirrel helicopter VH-HRU and Bell 214B-1 Biglifter helicopter N281JL.

Also Kennedy Aviation (of Gunnedah in New South Wales) Air Tractor AT-802 VH-XAY has been spotted parked at Bundaberg Airport.

The grass fire burnt out a large area near Bush Paddock Road and Fairymead Road at Fairymead near Bundaberg.

Sincere thanks to Dan from Dan Beck Photography for allowing us to share this great photo of a great visitor to CQ!
