Helibiz / Heli Lift Bell 205A-1 VH-WOC (ex P2-HBX) Spotted at Rockhampton Airport Heading North - Plus More!

On Friday 14 July, recently registered Helibiz / Heli Lift Bell 205A-1 VH-WOC was spotted as it arrived into Rockhampton Airport.  It looked to have flown up from Redcliffe via the Sunshine Coast and Bundaberg Airport.

The only recently re-registered Huey helicopter looked to be previously operated by Heli Niugini in Papua New Guinea (PNG) as P2-HBX.

UPDATE!  On Saturday 15 May, VH-WOC continued from Rockhampton Airport to Mackay Airport and then the Whitsunday Airport at Shute Harbour where it seems that it might be now based.

Another interesting helicopter that seemed to be flying 'with' Helicopter Resources (Tasmania) Aerospatiale AS.350B2 Squirrel VH-SRB which also landed at Rockhampton Airport after flying up Tassie via all stops including Roma Airport.

UPDATE!  On Saturday 15 May, VH-SRB departed Rockhampton Airport but only flew to Mackay Airport.

And LifeFlight Agusta Westland AW139 helicopter VH-XIA "Guardian 10" flew up from Archerfield to Townsville via Gladstone and Mackay Airports.  It was spotted departing Mackay Airport and is possibly being deployed to North Queensland for upcoming Military Exercises.

Meanwhile, also on Friday 14 July, the Queensland Police Service (Airwing) Cessna 208 Caravan VH-PSY visited Rockhampton Airport from Cairns and Townsville.

Landsur P/L Vulcanair (Partenavia) P.68C VH-OAV arrived into Rockhampton Airport from Emerald and Biloela / Thangool Airports. 

Finally, also on Friday 14 July, LifeFlight (Aeromed) Canadair CL-600-2B16 Challenger 604 bizjet VH-OFB "Ambulance 624" landed at Mackay Airport from Townsville and Mount Isa before it then departed to Brisbane.

And Bowenville (near Toowoomba) based Cessna 525 CitationJet CJ1+ bizjet VH-JSZ landed at my local Clermont Aerodrome from Archerfield and Dalby before it then departed to Natal Downs. This afternoon it reversed the flight.
