Built in 2010. Used as fire spotter aircraft for forest patrols in the south-west of WA. 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. Each aircraft uses the callsign “SPOTTER” followed by their individual number.

VH-ZIO Cessna 210N Centurion II (MSN 21064644) owned by Handel Aviation Pty Ltd, operated for Nearmap Pty Ltd, at Jandakot Airport – Sat 22 February 2014.
This aircraft has been modified with a special photographic survey pod called a ‘Hyperpod’ for Nearmap Pty Ltd. It replaces their previous Cessna 210M, VH-TKQ.
Nearmap’s Wikipedia page states: “Traditionally, high resolution aerial imagery has to be captured by a low altitude flying aircraft, then the data is manually processed and stitched together digitally to create a PhotoMap, a slow process which can take months to complete. NearMap speeds up this process by using their own engineered camera capture equipment, named a ‘HyperPod’, which is attached to Cessna 210 light aircraft, which fly at a high altitude, enabling entire cities to be captured in a day or two. Once the imagery is captured, it is processed through super computers which run software known as ‘HyperVision’ which automatically processes and stitches together the many individual photographs captured into one virtually seamless PhotoMap. Along with traditional top-down photography, the HyperPod is also able to capture oblique aerial photographs from 4 different angles and digital elevation model data at the same time.”

VH-NMO Grumman G-111 Albatross (MSN G-464) of Catalina Airlines Pty Ltd at Jandakot Airport – Sat 22 February 2014.
Since arriving at Jandakot, the only time that this aircraft appears to have flown was for a few flights during February 2013. It is starting to look a little dirty due to being exposed to the weather. With a maximum take-off weight of 13882kg, it exceeds the weight limits for operation from Jandakot, and had to apply for special dispensation to be parked here.
This was the last Grumman Albatross built. A total of 418 Grumman Albatross aircraft were built between 1947 and 1961.
It was built as a military Grumman UF-2 under the Military Aid Program (MAP), as the last of six ordered for the Japan Maritime Self Defense Force (JMSDF). For contractual purposes, it was allocated US Navy serial number 148329. It was delivered to the JMSDF on 5 May 1961, and allocated the JMSDF serial number 9056 – it also wore the US Navy serial 148329 on the rear fuselage. After 1962, it was re-designated as a Grumman HU-16D Albatross. See photo of the aircraft with the JMSDF in 1976: http://www.gonavy.jp/bbs1/img/2770.jpg
In the late 1970s/early 1980s, Grumman bought 57 ex-military Albatrosses for conversion to civil G-111 Albatross configuration, certified to conduct airline and charter operations. Around 1980, 9056/148329 was sold and registered N88999 – see 1980s photo: http://www.gonavy.jp/bbs1/img/2831.jpg .
In 1981, it was rebuilt by Grumman as a civilian G-111 Albatross, at a cost of US$1.2 million. Although Grumman thought that there was a market for 200 G-111s, only 13 were converted – 12 for Resorts International and one (this aircraft) for Conoco Oil/ Pelita Air Service. It can seat 23 but is certified to carry up to 28 people.
The aircraft was registered in Indonesia as PK-PAM with Pelita Air Service, flying on behalf of the Conoco oil company. It was based in Singapore, and used in support of offshore drilling in a 28-seat configuration.
On 6 March 1992, the aircraft was registered N26PR to Paragon Ranch, Broomfield, Colorado. By 1996, N26PR was owned by Mirabella Yachts Inc, Palm Beach, Florida – Sep 1996 photo: http://www.abpic.co.uk/photo/1064553/
On 8 December 1997, Mirabella Yachts reregistered the aircraft as N42MY. It was based at Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport, Florida and at Fort Pierce Airport, Florida. Here is a 2003 photo: http://www.airliners.net/photo/Grumman-G-111-Albatross/0457395/L/&sid=aac86aa3f09e8f84dbe6e378e17e8e90
On 21 January 2009, N42MY was registered to Sherman Aircraft Sales and advertised for sale – initially at $995,000, and later at US$795,000, based at West Palm Beach Airport, Florida, with a total of 4,433 flying hours.
In March 2012, N42MY was acquired by Australian businessman Mack McCormack, but registered to the Bank of Utah as trustee. It was flown to Salt Lake City, Utah, for inspections and repainting. It then flew to North County Airport in West Palm Beach, Florida and on 25 March 2012, it flew to the Port of Palm Beach at Lake Worth Inlet to be loaded onto the ship MV Suomigracht for transport to Australia. Photos of N42MY being loaded aboard: http://www.superyacht-australia.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/Sevenstar.png ).
It was shipped to Newcastle, NSW, arriving on 20 April 2012, and was flown to Newcastle Airport. On 23 April 2012, the aircraft flew from Bankstown to Sydney Harbour, where it landed and water-taxied past the Opera House to the former flying boat base at Rose Bay, before taking off again and returning to Bankstown.
On 25-26 April 2012, it flew across to Perth Airport. On 27 April 2012, N42MY took off from Perth Airport, flew along the Swan River, and ten minutes later landed and took off in Matilda Bay. Matilda Bay was once the base for US Navy and RAAF Catalina flying boats during World War Two. N42MY then flew to Rottnest Island and landed in Thompson Bay, then took off and flew to RAAF Base Pearce.
Mr McCormack planned to base the Albatross in Broome and use the aircraft to fly tourist and charter flights in and around the Kimberley region of Western Australia, including the Horizontal Waterfalls, Montgomery Reef, Prince Region and off the coast at Rowley Shoals.
In February 2013, it was reported in the Geraldton Guardian newspaper that Catalina Airlines was to begin flying boat flights departing from Perth’s Swan River to the Abrolhos Islands off the coast of Geraldton commencing from April 2013. Costing was estimated to be around A$1000 per person, and operations were to be expanded into the Kimberley region later. The aircraft conducted some promotional flights from Geraldton to the Abrolhos Islands in February. However, since then the aircraft has been parked at Jandakot Airport.
On 16 April 2013, it was registered as VH-NMO to Catalina Airlines Pty Ltd.

Construction of the upper floor of the new Domestic Pier at Terminal 1, Perth Airport – Wed 19 February 2014.
Virgin Australia will relocate their current domestic operations from Terminal 3 to this new Domestic Pier at Terminal 1. Construction is four months behind schedule and is now due to be completed in late October 2014. This will likely push its actual opening into January 2015, as various aspects of the new pier will need to be tested and staff training must be completed. The airline is unlikely to relocate during the busy period of Christmas 2014.

VH-EGU (FIREBIRD 620 / AIR ATTACK 1) Eurocopter AS350B2 Squirrel Soloy SD2 (MSN 3201) of Helicopter Logistics, leased from Pacific Crown Helicopters, operated for the Department of Fire and Emergency Services, at Warradale Park, Landsdale – Sun 12 January 2014.
Landed at 3.17pm for refuelling, after fighting a bush fire burning near homes in the northern suburb of Carabooda. More than 60 firefighters on the ground worked with the Helitaks to contain the fire, which was first reported at 1.36pm and burnt through 8.5 hectares.
The Department of Fire and Emergency Services later reported that cause of the fire was suspicious. A large crowd of local residents gathered to see the helicopters and talk to the aircrew. After refuelling, they departed at 4.15pm to Jandakot.
This Squirrel features panoramic windows and cabin doors, and was converted when in the USA with a Soloy SD2 kit, which included replacing the original Turbomeca Arriel engine with a Honeywell LTS101-700D-2 engine.
It was previously painted all over with a stars and stripes American flag and used for scenic flights by Las Vegas Helicopters. In 2007, it was sold to Papillon Grand Canyon Helicopters for scenic flights, and painted with this rainbow livery.
This helicopter coordinates aerial firefighting operations. Built in 1999, ex N5225A, N616LV, XA-SCL, N616LV.

VH-CVI / SPOTTER644 American Champion 8GCBC Scout (MSN 495-2007) of the WA Department of Parks and Wildlife (DPaW), with Western Power sponsor logo, at Jandakot Airport – Tue 11 February 2014.
Built in 2007. The Department of Parks and Wildlife uses a fleet of American Champion 8GCBC Scout aircraft as fire spotter aircraft for forest patrols in the south-west of WA. 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.

VH-TEM CASA C-212-200 (C-212-CC) (MSN 138) of Fugro Airborne Surveys/CGG Aviation Australia (no titles) at Jandakot Airport – Tue 11 February 2014.
This aircraft is nicknamed “The Hills Hoist”, after a square-shaped Australian clothes line which the aircraft resembles. It is officially called the “TEMPEST” aircraft, and is used for Time domain ElectroMagnetic (TEM) surveys (hence the registration VH-TEM). These surveys detect variations in the Earth’s electromagnetic fields caused by minerals and substances at depths from just below the surface of the ground to hundreds of metres deep.
VH-TEM made its first flight on 31 March 1978, wearing test registration ECT-103. It was displayed at the Farnborough Air Show in September 1978. Later, it was added to the main Spanish aircraft register as EC-DHQ, operated by Air Balaer from 9 Nov 1979 until returned to CASA in Feb 1980.
It became VH-KDV in Australia with Schutt Aviation 15 July 1981, and was later owned by Transexecutive Airlines in Jan 1985, and Lloyd Aviation in January 1987. It was registered in Papua New Guinea as P2-CNP to Stolip Aviation on 20 June 1987.
It returned to the Australian register as VH-TEM with Geoterrex in August 1988, Geoterrex later became part of Fugro Airborne Surveys, which became part of CGG Airborne Surveys in 2013. The aircraft has now had its Fugro titles removed.

VH-TSZ Piper PA-32-260 Cherokee Six (MSN 32-601) owned by Robert Duffy, named “Spirit of Ern” at Jandakot Airport – Tue 11 February 2014.
Built in 1966. Written off on 23 November 2012 at Jandakot Airport – took off from runway 24L at Jandakot and after turning onto the track to Beverley and at about 700 ft above ground level, the engine lost power, possibly due to carburettor icing. The pilot immediately turned the aircraft towards runway 30 but the engine did not regain power. With insufficient height and speed to reach the runway, the pilot force landed the aircraft into bushland within the airport precinct, approximately 150 m short of a cleared area in the undershoot of runway 30. The aircraft was substantially damaged by impact with trees. All aboard were okay and exited the aircraft, but the aircraft is beyond economical repair and is now being broken up for parts.
