Pionair Australia British Aerospace BAe-146-200 VH-SAZ Arrives into Hervey Bay (Fraser Coast) Airport

On Monday 2 September, Pionair Australia British Aerospace BAe 146-200QC VH-SAZ was spotted parked at Hervey Bay (Fraser Coast) Airport.

The passenger-configured aircraft touched down on what is believed to be a closed tourist charter flight from Sydney as 'SFZ9011' / "Skyforce 9011".

At the time of writing, it appears that VH-SAZ is remaining at Hervey Bay Airport for at least the night.

UPDATE!  On Wednesday 4 September, VH-SAZ departed Hervey Bay (Fraser Coast) Airport and headed West to Longreach Airport - see Blog post above.

VH-SAZ was acquired by Pionair Australia in late 2017 after it previously was operated by Titan Airways in the United Kingdom as G-ZAPK.  The BAe 146 arrived in Australia in early 2018 and has completed several other closed tourist charter flights and Fly-in Fly-out (FIFO) charter flights, before spending some time in Western Australia operating for Cobham Aviation.
