A Couple of Comings and Goings at Mackay and Proserpine Airports This Week

'Up the road' at Mackay and Poserpine (Whitsunday Coast) Airports, there have also been a couple of interesting visitors this week.  On Monday 13 July, and as mentioned below, Earth Commodities Cessna 550 Citation Bravo bizjet VH-CCJ called in for part of the day from Gladstone.

Also calling in from Gladstone on Monday was Air Charter CQ / Australia by Seaplane DHC-2 Beaver VH-IDO which I presume is undergoing maintenance while in Mackay.

Finally on Monday 13 July, Corporate Air / Vee H Aviation Cessna 441 VH-VED called into Mackay briefly.  Of interest, another Corporate Air / Vee H Aviation Cessna 441 VH-VEW overflew Mackay performing an aerial survey flight from Emerald to Townsville on Thursday 16 July.  Its flight track - shown below - shows that VH-VEW (flying as "Survey 24") surveyed a couple areas North of Mackay and then around Bowen.

On Tuesday 14 July, South Australia-based Piper PA-32RT-300T VH-CGN touched down from Longreach.  It departed to Rockhampton on Thursday 16 July.

On Friday 17 July, locally-based Embraer EMB-550 Legacy 500 bizjet N142GZ departed Mackay for the Gold Coast.

Up at Proserpine / Whitsunday Coast Airport, a couple more interesting light General Aviation (GA) aircraft were noted calling in with a couple of Cessna 208 Caravans of Australia Skydive (Skydive the Beach Group) heading North and South last Sunday 12 July.  VH-DVS was noted heading North to Cairns from Tyagarah via Prosie, while VH-ZMV flew South from Cairns to Tyagarah via Prosie.

Last Saturday 11 July, Townsville-based Bluewater Aviation Piper PA-31-350 VH-ECB made a quick trip South to Proserpine from Townsville.

And on Monday 13 July, Avcair (Sutherland Aviation) Raytheon B300 Super King Air VH-WXC visited Proserpine for part of the day.
