VH-LKQ / SPOTTER 640 (MSN 538-2011) American Champion 8GCBC Scout of the Department of Parks and Wildlife, with Western Power sponsor logos, at Bunbury Airport – Fri 9 May 2014.

They are based at Jandakot, Bunbury, Dwellingup and Manjimup, and fly across areas set each day according to the forecast fire weather conditions. The aircraft fly more hours during the hotter months (around 3,500 hours) due to the increased fire risk. They also supervise waterbombing operations in the south-west, relaying information to fire controllers regarding the fire’s behaviour to assist in firefighting and ensuring the safety of fire crews.
