Big Bristow Helicopters Sikorsky S-92A Helibus Helicopter VH-ZUJ Passes Through Charleville and Roma Airports

A nice large helicopter to pass through Central Queensland over the weekend was Bristow Helicopters Sikorsky S-92A Helibus VH-ZUJ.  It was noted arriving into Charleville Airport during the afternoon on Saturday 5 January before departing early on Sunday 6 January for Roma Airport and the Helitek Helipad in Brisbane.

VH-ZUJ had departed Exmouth in Western Australia on Friday 4 January on this ferry flight across the country to Brisbane.  It also called into Newman, Warburton, Ayers Rock, Alice Springs and Birdsville before it made its way to Charleville and Roma Airports and then Brisbane.

As pictured above, VH-ZUJ was originally delivered to Australia at Perth Airport in November 2016 along with another Bristow S-92A with American registration N392BG.  They were delivered from Bristow’s American base at Acadiana Regional Airport, New Iberia, Louisiana, on board Volga-Dnepr Airlines Antonov AN-124-100 RA-82079 and were eventually trucked to Broome where they have been operating from.
