Awesome Trio of Bizjets at Rockhampton Airport Tuesday - G550 B-8137 - Challenger VH-LEF - Embraer Legacy N142GZ

An awesome trio of bizjets has called into Rockhampton Airport on Tuesday 18 August, with the highlight being Chinese registered Gulfstream Aerospace G-V-SP Gulfstream G550 B-8137 touching down at Rockhampton Airport from Shanghai and Cairns.

The sleek Gulfstream wears "Me & City" titles which research reveals is a Chinese fashion label.

B-8137 parked in front of the Air Traffic Control (ATC) Tower on the Northern end of the Rockhampton Airport parking apron.  It doesn't appear to be departing any time soon!

Meanwhile, as local plane spotters Kayanne and Trevor's photos show, B-8137 was joined by Linfox Express Charter / Air National Australia Canadair CL-600-2B16 Challenger 604 VH-LEF.

The smart little challenger - which is usually based at Melbourne (Essendon) - arrived from Darwin.  It later departed to Brisbane and Melbourne (Tullamarine) Airport.

Finally, capping off an awesome morning for bizjet action at Rockhampton Airport, was the arrival of Embraer EMB-550 Legacy 500 N142GZ which touched down from its Mackay base.

It departed to the Sunshine Coast a short while later.

N142GZ returned to Rocky later on Tuesday 18 August from the Sunny Coast and returned to Mackay.

Of interest, N142GZ has also visited Rockhampton over the course of Saturday 15 August and Sunday 16 August and again on Monday 17 August, flying between Rocky and Mackay.

A great morning was had by Kayanne and Trevor, and we thank them sincerely for sending through these awesome photos!
