QGAir Rescue (State of Queensland) Agusta AW139 Helicopter VH-EZJ Flys South via Rockhampton Airport

On Thursday 8 October, Queensland Government (QGAir) Rescue (State of Queensland) Agusta AW139 helicopter VH-EZJ was noted ferrying South from Townsville to Archerfield via Rockhampton Airport.

VH-EZJ seems to heading to Archerfield for planned maintenance after operating out of Townsville Airport for a period of time as "Rescue 521".

As we have mentioned previously, this is part of the 'rotational system' the service utilizes to ensure the even distribution of flying hours on each of the QGAir Rescue helicopters.  This system avoids the need to have multiple helicopters offline for simultaneous scheduled maintenance.

It will be interesting to see if another QGAir Rescue helicopter ferries North in the coming days to 'replace; VH-EZJ.
