Thai-Registered Diamond DA-42 NG Twin Star HS-MAR Arrives into Rockhampton Airport

A nice arrival into Rockhampton Airport on Saturday 15 September with Asian Spirit Thailand-registered Diamond DA-42 NG Twin Star HS-MAR touching down in the beef capital from Bankstown via Coffs Harbour in New South Wales.

The smart little DA-42 looks to be on an 'around-Australia' flight with it initially arriving into the country via Broome in Western Australia last weekend.  It has since flown down the Western Australian coast before flying across to Bankstown during the latter part of last week via stops at Ceduna in South Australia and Mildura in Victoria.

At the time of writing, HS-MAR has been tied down and looked to spending at least the night parked at Rockhampton Airport.

UPDATE!  HS-MAR departed Rockhampton Airport for Cairns on Monday 17 September.  It has since continued to Darwin before heading overseas to Indonesia.

Of interest, the Diamond DA-42 Twin Star is a four seat, twin engine, propeller-driven airplane developed and manufactured by Austrian company Diamond Aircraft Industries.

Sincere thanks to local plane spotters Kayanne H and Trevor H for taking the time to capture and send through these great photos!
