A36-001 was noted flying in from Canberra as "Envoy 15" and brought Prime Minister Tony Abbott to the Whitsundays to make some important environmental policy announcements.
Meanwhile, a couple of other bizjet movements in and out of Hamilton Island Airport were noted over the course of this week including Balmoral Air (operated for Hamilton Island's owner, and well-known vineyard owner, Bob Oatley) Dassault Falcon 2000LX VH-WIO, which visited from Bankstown on both Sunday 22 March and Thursday 19 March.
On Friday 20 March, Shortstop Jet Charter British Aerospace BAe-125-1000B VH-LMP made yet another visit to Hamo from Melbourne (Essendon) Airport, while on Thursday 19 March, Cessna 680 Citation Sovereign VH-VPL departed Hamo for its Gold Coast base having arrived earlier in the week.
And, as mentioned below, Tower Holdings Bombardier CL-600-2B16 Challenger 604 VH-EVJ called into Hamilton Island from Rockhampton briefly on Wednesday 18 March.
Finally, on Friday 20 March, three Corporate Air SAAB 340Bs - VH-VEF, VH-VEO and VH-VEP - all arrived at Hamilton Island in quick succession from Brisbane. They all departed back to the capital soon after. There was a similar occurrence when the three SAABs all visited Hamo from Brisbane earlier in the week. I wonder why??
