Air Kiribati Embraer E-190-E2 VH-IKJ Pops into Rockhampton Airport on a Training Flight

As posted on our Facebook page, on Tuesday 23 November, Air Kiribati Embraer E190-E2 (ERJ-190-300 STD) VH-IKJ was spotted at Rockhampton Airport, operating what appears to be a training flight.

It looked to fly up from Toowoomba-Wellcamp and the Gold Coast.

After around an hour on the ground, VH-IKJ then returned directly to Wellcamp.

As mentioned previously, the brand new Embraer was delivered to Air Kiribati at Toowoomba-Wellcamp in January 2020 wearing its Brazilian delivery registration marking of PR-EHT.

It was added to the Australian Aircraft Register in February as VH-IKJ is owned by and registered to the Government of Kiribati, with Sydney-based passenger and cargo airline Pionair Australia as the registered operator.

Sincere thanks to local photographer Steve V for allowing us to share these great photos!
