An interesting couple of days for light General Aviation (GA) movements at Longreach Airport has been highlighted by a pair of Surveillance Australia / Australian Customs and Border Protection Service (Cobham Aviation) Reims F406 aircraft calling in from Cairns and departing to Adelaide over the early part of this week.

On Monday 13 July VH-YZE was first to call in from Cairns.  It departed to Adelaide on Tuesday 14 July.

A couple of other interesting movements in and out of Longreach Airport this week have included Gulf Aircraft Agusta AW119 MKII helicopter VH-PYO which was scheduled to call into Longreach from Mount Isa on Tuesday 14 July.  It was later due to depart to Roma and Brisbane.  VH-PYO flew Northbound over this route in late June.

Also, Toowoomba-based Brescon Beech B200 VH-WXN visited Longreach once again on Tuesday 14 July while flying from Cloncurry to Brisbane-West Wellcamp Airport and then Toowoomba.  It had flown North via Blackall on Monday 13 July.

Meanwhile, South Australia-based Piper PA-32RT-300T VH-CGN called in from Birdsville on Tuesday 14 July.  After taking on fuel, it departed to Mackay.

Another visitor from South Australia - Agile Aviation Pilatus PC-12/47E VH-TCP - called into Longreach Airport once again on Sunday 12 July, returning South to Adelaide from Hamilton Island. It also stopped at Broken Hill.

Toowoomba-based Pilatus PC-12/45 VH-PID also called into Longreach on Sunday 12 July while flying from Townsville to Adelaide.

Finally, after arriving on Friday 10 July, Alliance Airlines departed Longreach Airport on Sunday 12 July, returning to Brisbane after operating a charter flight on behalf of Tourism Queensland into the Central West.  VH-XWT flew back to Brisbane as UTY591.
