The Queensland Government (State of Queensland) Raytheon Hawker 850XP bizjet VH-SGY touched down at Longreach Airport from Brisbane and Roma on Thursday 21 January.  After spending the night, VH-SGY departed Longreach to Windorah before returning to Brisbane.

Another bizjet to visit Longreach Airport on Friday 22 January was Edwards Coaches Cessna 525 Citation CJ1 VH-KXL which made a late night arrival from Armidale and the Gold Coast.  It later departed to Mount Isa where it landed in the wee small hours of Saturday 23 January.

Then, later on Saturday 23 January, VH-KXL returned to Longreach Airport from Mount Isa and later departed to Brisbane and Armidale.

Meanwhile, on Friday 22 January, Air Link Piper PA-31-350 VH-DVR called into Longreach Airport from Dubbo and Charleville.  It later departed further North to Normanton.

Finally, a couple of light General Aviation (GA) movements on Saturday 23 January included the return of Julia Creek-based Beech A36 Bonanza VH-BZY which arrived from Rockhampton, Sunshine Coast-based Mooney M20J VH-KDC was noted operating a return flight from Longreach to Winton and locally-based Air Central West Cessna T210N Centurion VH-AKY departing Longreach to Toowoomba.
