Queensland Government (QGAir) Rescue Bell 412 Helicopter VH-ESD Spotted at Mackay Airport

On Friday 22 February, Townsville-based Queensland Government (QGAir) Rescue Bell 412 helicopter VH-ESD "Rescue 521" was photographed at Mackay Airport while it appeared to be completing a medical evacuation flight to Townsville Hospital.

VH-ESD had earlier flown down from Townsville to Mackay Base Hospital and appeared to then fly across to Mackay Airport to refuel.  VH-ESD then returned to the Mackay Base Hospital before departing to Townsville Hospital.

Visits to Mackay by the Townsville-based QGAir Rescue helicopters are few and far between, however, it does often (weekly at least) make a visit on a medical evacuation task to Bowen or even Proserpine Hospitals.
