Maroochydore / Sunshine Coast based McDermott Aviation / Machjet Pty Ltd  Aerospatiale AS.355F1 Squirrel VH-HRU made a brief refuelling stop at Gladstone on Thursday, May 07.

Unfortunately, detail about the activity of this neatly presented chopper is unknown.

Note the "Rural Fire Service Queensland" title along the upper section of the tail boom.

Meanwhile, Handel Aviation / Acena Nominess Cessna 210N VH-TEY also popped into Gladstone Airport to take onboard fuel while reportedly conducting survey work in the area.
