And a Couple of Bizjet Movement into CQ Airports to Top Off the Week!

Over the last couple of days, bizjet movements at CQ Airports have focused on Hamilton Island with - on Friday 19 December - Shortstop Jet Charter British Aerospace BAe-125-1000B VH-LMP making a brief visit, calling in from Melbourne (Essendon) and departing to the Sunshine Coast.

On Thursday 18 December, RLB Holdings Dassault Falcon 900 bizjet N610RL, which had arrived at Hamo the previous week, departed for Hobart and, as mentioned below, FlyJock Gulfstream G-III bizjet N734TJ touched down at Hamo on Wednesday 17 December.

While not necessarily a business jet - more a business turbo-prop - Agile Aviation (of South Australia) Pilatus PC-12/47E VH-TCP - which seems to have been operating out of Hamilton Island this week, departed back to its Adelaide base via Sydney on Friday 19 December.

Elsewhere this week, we mentioned below the visits of Tower Holdings Bombardier CL-600-2B16 Challenger 604 VH-EVJ and Toowoomba-based Light Jets Australia Cessna 525 Citation CJ1 VH-TFW both to Rockhampton, the Queensland Government Airwing (State of Queensland) Raytheon Hawker 850XP VH-SGY to Bundaberg and Cessna 680 Citation Sovereign VH-VPL to Gladstone.

One other bizjet that caught my eye was Victoria-based Raytheon 390 Premier I VH-VHP which made a surprise arrival into Longreach Airport on Wednesday 17 December while on a scheduled flight from Bankstown to Mount Isa.

After seemingly taking on fuel, VH-VHP was then due to depart to the Isa but was later noted flying into Darwin where it remained for a couple of days.

Finally, locally-based Raytheon 390 Premier 1 bizjet N7088S departed its Mackay base last Friday 12 December and was noted flying into Brisbane from Bankstown on Friday 19 December suggesting a return to Mackay could be close.
