The two helicopters were identified as Pacific Helicopters Ltd of Papua New Guinea (PNG) Eurocopter / Aerospatiale AS350B2 Squirrel helicopters P2-PHK and P2-PHY.
Both helicopters were noted arriving the Whitsunday Airport at Shute Harbour late on Saturday where they spent the night. They were photographed (above) early on Sunday 9 December before they later departed to Rockhampton Airport. After taking on fuel, both Squirrel helicopters then departed to Bundaberg Airport before continuing further South.
