Coulson Aircrane (Canada) (Coulson Aviation) Sikorsky S-61N Helicopter C-FXEC Pops into Longreach Airport

A really nice helicopter to be spotted passing through Central Queensland on Tuesday 9 June was Coulson Aircrane (Canada) (Coulson Aviation) Sikorsky S-61N C-FXEC which was photographed arriving into Longreach Airport for fuel while ferrying from Bankstown in New South Wales to Indonesia.

C-FXEC looked to arrive from Bourke in Northern New South Wales and later departed to Mount Isa where it was due to spend the night.

At the time of writing, C-FXEC was scheduled to continue through the Northern Territory to Darwin on Wednesday 10 February

It appears that C-FXEC is ultimately heading to Indonesia after spending the Australian bushfire fighting season in Victoria where it flew as "Helitak 347".

Sincere thanks to local plane spotter Greg W who was at the right place at the right time at Longreach Airport to capture these great photos!
