It called in from Vanrook Station near Normanton and departed to Bankstown.  VH-KXM has spent the last few weeks operating out of Vanrook Station and has been noted at a few CQ and North Queensland Airports.

Meanwhile, a few light General Aviation (GA) aircraft were also noted calling into Longreach Airport over recent days and on Tuesday 10 November.  Cessna 310 VH-CWZ visited from the Sunshine Coast and departed to Burketown, while Brescon Beech B200 VH-WXN called in on the from Toowoomba and Brisbane-West Wellcamp Airports.

These 'regular' Fly-in Fly-out (FIFO) flights seem to touch down each week with, on this occasion, VH-WXN continuing to Cloncurry and Century Mine.

Of interest, Sabstall Beech B200 King Air VH-NME operated a similar flight through Longreach Airport last Wednesday 4 November.

Finally, The Qantas Founders Museum at Longreach Airport has shared a few photos from Saturday 31 October of the much publicised visit by Qantas Airways Boeing B737-800 VH-XZP 'Retro Roo' as it visited Longreach Airport on a charity flight from and back to Sydney.



They also captured a photos of a beaut little visitor in the form of Amateur Built Spitfire Replica VH-KPW which called in briefly for fuel while heading home to Cairns from an airshow in New South Wales.


Great visitors!
