Also spotted at Rockhampton Airport on Wednesday 22 February was another nice helicopter in the form of Messerschmitt Bolkow Blohm MBB BO105 S VH-ZXW.
The German-built helicopter is operated by Skyline Aviation of Marks Point in New South Wales (NSW).
VH-ZXW was reportedly on a flight from North to Mackay Airport but turned back and landed at Rockhampton Airport reportedly due to inclement weather in and around Mackay. It was earlier noted completing a flight from Balina / Byron Gateway Airport in the Northern New South Wales to the Sunshine Coast.
Sincere thanks to local plane spotter Kayanne H who was at the right place at the right time to capture these great photos!
