Meanwhile, also on Thursday 23 March, Queensland Government (QGAir) Rescue (State of Queensland) Leonardo S.P.A. Helicopter (Agusta) AW139 helicopter VH-EGF popped into Emerald Airport while flying North to Townsville from Archerfield. It looks to have taken up operations there as "Rescue 521".
It comes a day after fellow QGAir AW139 helicopter VH-EGK ferried South from Townsville to Archerfield, also via Emerald Airport - see Blog post below.
