Queensland Government (QGAir) Rescue Agusta AW139 Helicopter VH-ESZ Flys North via Gladstone and Mackay Airports

On Tuesday 1 June, Queensland Government (QGAir) Rescue (State of Queensland) Agusta AW139 helicopter VH-ESZ was noted ferrying North from Archerfield via Gladstone and Mackay Airports to Townsville.

VH-ESZ had flown South to Archerfield via Rockhampton Airport for planned maintenance in May this year - as shown above.

As we have reported previously, this 'rotational system' of airframes that QGAir utilises ensure the even distribution of flying hours on each of the their 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 South in the coming days.
