VH-EWA “RAC Rescue” Bell 412EP (MSN 36312) of the Department of Fire & Emergency Services (operated by CHC Helicopters) at Jandakot Airport – Thu 21 November 2013.
VH-EWA “RAC Rescue” Bell 412EP (MSN 36312) of the Department of Fire & Emergency Services (operated by CHC Helicopters) at Jandakot Airport – Thu 21 November 2013.
Recently returned from a lengthy overhaul and repaint in Queensland, the RAC Rescue helicopter now sports the RAC’s revised logo.
RAC Rescue’s primary role is to fly paramedics directly to an incident and then transport the injured patients directly to hospital. Its secondary role is to provide essential hospital transfers. It also undertakes ship to shore rescues, and responds to Emergency Position Radio Beacons (EPIRBs). The crew includes a pilot, air crew officer and St John Ambulance critical care paramedic. During critical hospital transfers, a doctor may also be on board.
RAC Rescue has to be ready to respond 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, and flights can be airborne within 15 minutes of receiving a call. The helicopter is able to reach areas which are inaccessible to ambulances, and often halves response times. Since the service was established in August 2003, RAC Rescue has undertaken almost 3000 missions, saving the lives of several hundred people – mainly responding to major traffic crashes, but also undertaking searches, cliff and sea rescues.It is WA’s only dedicated emergency rescue helicopter service and can operate up to 200 kilometres from Perth, covering 90 percent of WA’s population.
VH-EWA was built in 2002, ex C-GBUP.

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 French Turbomeca Arriel engine with a Honeywell LTS101-700D-2 engine (note the different engine exhaust, compared to VH-AFO’s Arriel engine).
VH-EGU was previously painted all over with a stars and stripes American flag and used for scenic flights by Las Vegas Helicopters (see http://www.airliners.net/photo/Las-Vegas-Helicopters/Eurocopter-AS-350B-2-Ecureuil/0827674/L/ ). In 2007, it was sold to Papillon Grand Canyon Helicopters for scenic flights, and painted with this rainbow livery.
It is owned by Queensland-based Pacific Crown Helicopters, but has been based at Jandakot for the past month, operating as a “FIREBIRD 620″ for the Department of Fire and Emergency Services – these aerial command and control helicopters coordinate firefighting operations. The panoramic windows would make it highly suitable for this work.

VH-WPX was delivered in September 2011, and it was hoped to be ready for CHOGM, but fitting out the helicopter with equipment and training the pilots took longer than expected. It entered service at the end of May 2012. More than 3500 hours were spent on designing and integrating various systems, including communications, sensors, a forward-looking infra-red (FLIR) camera, Tasking and Dispatch Information Systems (TADIS), special lighting, a rescue winch and other equipment. The Dauphin 2 is able to access security camera footage and can carry up to 10 passengers, three more than the BK-117 helicopter VH-WAH, which is still in service.

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-KTG was built in 2011, and is seen here landing on runway 06L after a bush fire patrol.

VH-DXL / SPOTTER646 American Champion 8GCBC Scout (MSN 516-2009) of the Department of Parks and Wildlife, at Jandakot Airport - Thu 21 November 2013.
VH-DXL / SPOTTER646 American Champion 8GCBC Scout (MSN 516-2009) of the Department of Parks and Wildlife, at Jandakot Airport – Thu 21 November 2013.
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-DXL was built in 2009, and is seen here taking off from runway 06L for another forest/bush fire patrol.

Parked outside the Royal Aero Club of Western Australia, as part of a static display to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Jandakot Airport, which officially opened on 1 July 1963.
VH-CKF / A17-421:
Built in 1941. Ordered for Rhodesia as DX535 but taken on RAAF charge on 4 October 1941 as A17-421.
Acquired by Dept of Civil Aviation (DCA) from RAAF stock and converted for civil use with a raked-forward undercarriage which permitted the use of a tailwheel and wheel brakes. It was registered to DCA as VH-AZL on 26 June 1947. At the time of its initial conversion, or shortly afterwards, it was fitted with a canopy of a style developed by De Havilland Canada.
Following a change of policy, it was re-registered in DCA’s block as VH-CAG on 4 May 1949. It was allocated to DCA’s Western Australia Region, based at Maylands.
By 6 April 1957, the canopy had been removed, and the aircraft was used by DCA to test prospective aerial agriculture pilots.
Sold to the Gliding Association of Western Australia on 5 April 1960 for £450. Reregistered 7.7.1960 as VH-TUG Gliding Association of Western Australia Inc, Doubleview, WA, later to Gliding Club of Western Australia Inc. , Bedford Park, WA.
Reregistered 23.10.1965 as VH-CKF. Went through a number of owners before being sold in 1986 to Reg Adkins (ex MMA DC-3, F27 & F28 pilot).
VH-FAS / A17-37:
Registered 23.11.1995 to Royal Aero Club of Western Australia Inc, and painted in RAAF markings as A17-421, named “Shirley Adkins” (after Reg Adkins’ wife).
Built in 1942, ex A17-37,VH-RJA. This aircraft was rebuilt after ditching into the Swan River in November 1995.

VH-BQO Christen Eagle II (MSN V81) Eagle Magic Pty Ltd at Jandakot Airport 50th Anniversary, Jandakot Airport – Thu 21 November 2013.
Parked outside the Royal Aero Club of Western Australia, as part of a static display to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Jandakot Airport, which officially opened on 1 July 1963.
Built by its first owner in Ballarat, Victoria in 1986, but his first flight turned into a fright – and he immediately put his new aircraft for sale.
A syndicate from Jandakot, comprising brothers Neill and Ted Rear, Peter Yates, and Kevin Bailey purchased it.
In 1988 Kevin, sponsored by Rabbit Photos, flew VH-BOO into all Australian mainland capital cities doing aerobatic displays as part of the Bi-Centennial celebrations.
On 20 Jan 1989, Peter Yates was flying the Eagle in the training area when the original fixed-pitch wooden propeller separated due to shrinkage of the wood, which loosened the prop retaining bolts. The prop damaged the right side of the cowling and lower right wingtip. Peter conducted a near perfect forced landing in a paddock 4 miles south of Jandakot without further damage.
During the 3 months VH-BOO was out of the sky, CASA allocated the registration to another aircraft, so on 6 Dec 1989, it was registered VH-BQO, which looks like the original registration. CASA stipulated the Eagle must be fitted with a constant speed propeller. VH-BQO had clocked up about 1500 hours (as at Sep 2006), with a new syndicate owning the aircraft.
VH-BQO Registered 15.6.1989 Kevin H. Bailey, Burrendah WA Ex (VH-BOO ntu)
Registered 18.2.1993 Kevin H. Bailey, Mundijong WA
Registered 20.6.1995 Eagle Magic Pty Ltd, Mundaring WA

VH-OQB Airbus A380-842 (MSN 015) of Qantas, named ‘Hudson Fysh’ at Perth Airport – Sat 16 November 2013.
* FIRST VISIT TO PERTH*
This aircraft was operating flight QF1 from Sydney to Dubai and London-Heathrow flying at 34,000 feet over the Midwest region of Western Australia, when one of the passengers fell seriously ill and the aircraft had to make an emergency medical diversion. It was positioned about 200 km east of Dongara when the Captain decided to divert to Perth. At 6:14 pm, the aircraft changed course and headed south. When near Bindoon, it headed west, out over the town of Two Rocks and over the ocean to dump fuel in order to reduce the landing weight to within acceptable limits. It then turned south and then east again, crossing the coast over Alkimos, before landing on runway 21 at Perth Airport at exactly 7pm.
After offloading the ill passenger and her luggage, the aircraft was refuelled at Bay 56 before taking off again at 21:34 to continue its journey to Dubai and Heathrow.

Domestic Pier under construction at Terminal 1, Perth Airport – Sat 16 November 2013.
Domestic Pier under construction at Terminal 1, Perth Airport – Sat 16 November 2013.
Virgin Australia will relocate their current domestic operations from Terminal 3 to this new Domestic Pier at Terminal 1. Construction is now four months behind schedule and construction 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.

    Qatar aircraft in Nov 2013 photo section is A7-BBD not -BBB.

    Qatar Star Alliance B773W’s were painted at Dublin not Dubai.

    Indo Air Asia already has a non standard liveried A320 which is PK-AXS in Wow livery, so comments about -AXA being first are incorrect.

    Otherwise great informative page.

      Many thanks Tom for correcting this, as I do try to make the articles accurate.
      Have corrected the captions on photos of A7-BBD and the article on the Qatar Star Alliance 777-300ERs.
      Although Indonesia AirAsia does have PK-AXS in “Wow” advertising livery, this was painted on the aircraft when it was still operated by the Malaysian arm of AirAsia as 9M-AFK, and it has not yet been painted in standard colours, so the comment about PK-AXA being the first Indonesian-registered aircraft to be painted as a logo jet is still technically correct. However, I have amended the article to further clarify this.
      Thanks again.

      Regards,

    I’d just like to say how much I enjoy your website. As a kid I lived on Perth Airport, as my father worked for DCA (Department of Civil Aviation), as it was known then. I spent a hell of a lot of my days at the airport, watching the arrivals and departures and it has left me with an enduring love of aircraft and flying, to this day. As I now live at Busselton, I can only too rarely visit the airport and would have been there in a flash, had I been in Perth and known about the Qantas A 380 VH-OQB that diverted there yesterday. Please thank the photographer WILSON for me. They made an old aircraft nut very happy by posting that photo, since I couldn’t be there to see it in person.
    I live in hope that, once the new A 380 gate is completed, that Qantas may eventually bring their A380 fleet into Perth airport. It would make my day, as it is far and away, the best aircraft I have ever flown on (Singapore-London 3 times).
    Kindest regards

      Hi Dave,
      Many thanks for your kind compliments about the website, and I will pass on your comment to Wilson.
      The A380 gate at Bay 51 is most likely to be used by A380s of Emirates initially.
      Sadly, Qantas seems to have given up on competing against foreign airlines from Perth for the time being. They do plan on expanding international operations from Australia using Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners from 2016, but the airline’s CEO has indicated that these aircraft will only be delivered if the International Division becomes profitable. All of the other international airlines are expanding operations from Perth, so Qantas may have a challenge in trying to regain market share later.
      Regards,
      David Eyre
