QGAir Rescue (State of Queensland) Agusta AW139 Helicopter VH-ESH Ferries North via Rockhampton Airport

As predicted, on Wednesday 5 May, Queensland Government (QGAir) Rescue (State of Queensland) Agusta AW139 helicopter VH-ESH was spotted as it called into Rockhampton Airport while ferrying North through Central Queensland.  The Agusta departed Archerfield and flew up to Rockhampton Airport to take on fuel before it then continued to Townsville.

As mentioned below, on Tuesday 4 May, fellow Queensland Government (QGAir) Rescue (State of Queensland)  Agusta AW139 helicopter VH-ESZ was noted ferrying South from Townsville to Archerfield also via Rockhampton Airport.

As we have mentioned previously, this is part of the 'rotational system' the service utilises 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.
