New Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) King Air VH-VJW "FlyDoc 403" at CQ Airports

On Thursday 9 January, one of the four new Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) Raytheon B200 King Air turboprop aircraft VH-VJW looked to position from Cairns to Charleville Airport.  The next day, on Friday 10 January, VH-VJW continued to Roma Airport where it appears to be now possibly based.  It was heard to be using the radio callsign of "FlyDoc 403".

Then on Tuesday 14 January, VH-VJW "FlyDoc 403" flew from Roma Airport to Barcaldine and then Longreach Airports where it appeared to stay for the day.  It then flew back to Roma Airport again via Barcaldine Airport during the late afternoon.

VH-VJW is one of four 'new' King Air turboprop aircraft that the RFDS has recently taken delivery of through Cairns.  It and another registered VH-VJX "FlyDoc 426" appear to be the only two that have been into Central Queensland Airports.

The others are registered VH-VJY and VH-VJZ.
