Former Whitsunday Tiger Moth Adventures DH-82A Tiger Moth VH-BOJ Passes Through CQ Airports Heading to New Owner - Plus More!

On Saturday 4 November, the now former Whitsunday Tiger Moth Adventures DH-82A Tiger Moth VH-BOJ was photographed as it prepared for departure from Rockhampton Airport on a delivery flight down to new owners in the South East corner of the state.

The iconic yellow Tiger Moth departed the Whitsunday Airport at Shute Harbour on Friday 3 November for Mackay Airport and then Rocky.  From Rockhampton Airport, VH-BOJ headed to Gladstone Airport and Bundaberg Airport and then ports further South.

Sad to see it go...

Meanwhile, also ferrying through CQ, also on Saturday 4 November, was Embraer EMB-110P1 Bandeirante VH-EQB.  It looked to call into Charleville Airport from Goulburn before continuing up to Cairns.

UPDATE!  Information suggests that VH-EQB was de-registered at the start of February 2024.

Finally, also on Saturday 4 November, Australian Corporate Jet Centres' operated Embraer EMB-135BJ Legacy bizjet VH-VLT called into Hamilton Island Airport from Brisbane.  It later departed to the Gold Coast and then Melbourne (Essendon).
