Making a surprise but welcome visit into Emerald Airport on Wednesday 16 April was Bombardier BD-700-1A11 Global 5000 bizjet N50XC. I captured the lovely bizjet as it departed Brisbane for Emerald on Wednesday morning.
N50XC departed Emerald for Sydney.
Meanwhile, a couple of other notable movements I captured at Brisbane that called into Emerald Airport on Wednesday 16 April included Pel-Air / Regional Express (REX) SAAB 340B VH-REX, which was captured about to depart on it regular Fly-in Fly-out (FIFO) run to Emerald on behalf of Pel-Air as PFY9282.
VH-REX later returned as PFY9283. It also called into Emerald on Tuesday night. Interestingly, it also operated a FIFO flight to Emerald on Sunday 13 April as well - perhaps a new flight?
Another FIFO flight to Emerald each week was operated by Alliance Airlines Fokker F-70 VH-JFE on Wednesday 16 April.
It departed as UTY1070 and is pictured returning to Brisbane later as UTY1071.
