A Couple of Light General Aviation (GA) Aircraft Also Spotted at Rockhampton Airport

Also spotted during a busy Monday 24 August at Rockhampton Airport was a pair of Flight Training Adelaide (FTA) / Qantas Group Pilot Academy Diamond DA-40 Star training aircraft.

As shown, VH-YTU and VH-YTR popped into Rockhampton Airport from their Toowoomba-Wellcamp base via missed approaches at the Sunshine Coast and Hervey Bay (Fraser Coast) Airports.  They then returned to Wellcamp.

Meanwhile, the Queensland Police Service (Airwing) (State of Queensland) Cessna 208 Caravan VH-PSQ was spotted departing Rockhampton Airport.  It looked to arrive from the South and possibly completed a local flight before again departing Rocky and returning South.

And Pilatus PC-12/45 VH-PID also arrived into Rockhampton Airport from its Toowoomba base early on Monday 24 August.

Eurocopter EC130B4 VH-EHY of Avalon Aviation (Executive Helicopters) in Brisbane was also spotted visiting Rockhampton Airport, also on Monday 24 August.  It arrived from Hamilton Island and Mackay Airports before later departing to Bundaberg Airport and Archerfield.

It also visited Rockhampton Airport last Friday 21 August heading North to Hamo.

Also in the Whitsundays, also on Monday 24 August, the often visiting American-registered Eclipse EA500 bizjet N257AK was noted arriving into the Whitsunday Airport at Shute Harbour from Archerfield.

While on Sunday 23 August, Hinterland Aviation Beech B200 King Air VH-HLJ was noted departing (possibly) Hamilton Island Airport.

Finally, out West at Emerald Airport, Seair Pacific (Istlecote) Textron Aviation (Cessna) 208B Caravan VH-TLH  was noted passing through on both Saturday 22 August and Sunday 23 August while on a flight from Redcliffe to Richmond via Emerald Airport.
