Of interest, soon after its arrival into Townsville, VH-ESH then looked to operate a med-evac flight to Mackay Base Hospital and then back to Townsville but as "Rescue 521".
It seems that the two locally-based QGAir Rescue Bell 412 helicopters at Townsville may not be operational at the present time.
UPDATE! On Thursday 15 June, VH-ESH returned to Archerfield from Townsville via Mackay and Gladstone Airport again flying as "Rescue 500". It appears that Bell 412 VH-ESB has returned to service out of Townsville.
