PNG Registered Pacific Aerospace PAC 750XL P2-OMC - And More Lighties - At Rockhampton Airport

Quite a few light General Aviation (GA) aircraft have been noted calling into Rockhampton Airport over the last couple of days including, on Friday 17 July, Pacific Aerospace PAC 750XL P2-OMC, which looked to be in delivery to an operator (possibly Central Aviation) in Papua New Guinea (PNG).

P2-OMC touched down at Rocky from the Gold Coast and later departed to Cairns.

Another notable arrival into Rockhampton on Friday 17 July was One Nation leader Pauline Hanson in her recently launched Australian-built Jabiru ultralight 24-8637.  It appears that the Jabiru flew into Rocky from Caloundra and Gladstone.

Other lighties calling into Rockhampton Airport on Friday 17 July included Brisbane based Cessna P210N VH-XXU which called in from Archerfield.  Also calling in from Archerfield was Brisbane-based Pilatus PC-12/47E VH-VTF.  It departed back South after a short while.

The Queensland Police Service (Airwing) Raytheon B1900D VH-PSK called in twice on Friday 17 July during yet another busy day of flying.

Other lighties noted arriving into Rockhampton Airport on Friday 17 July were mostly locally based including Cessna 210 VH-UCT from Woorabinda, J.M. Kelly (Project Builders) Cessna 310 VH-FFA returned from Springsure and Clermont and Mooney M20TN VH-JEU returned from Theodore.

After arriving into Rocky on Monday 13 July, Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) Pilatus PC-12/45 VH-NQB ("FlyDoc 428") departed back to Mount Isa after a week in the maintenance hangar.

Lastly on Friday 17 July, Expedition Aerial Services Cessna 177B VH-LBV popped in from its Moura base.  It was the second aircraft in as many days to call in from the mining town West of Biloela with Redjet Aviation Piper PA-31 Navajo VH-PJU flying from Toowoomba to Moura and on to Rockhampton and return on Thursday 16 July.

Also on Thursday 16 July, South Australia-based Piper PA-32RT-300T VH-CGN touched down at Rockhampton from Mackay.
