A little later on Monday 15 February, Business Aviation Solutions Bombardier CL-600-2B16 Challenger 604 bizjet VH-BLM also called into Hamilton Island Airport from its Gold Coast base. It later departed to Sydney.
Another Challenger 604 bizjet visiting Hamilton Island - 75 Express Inc. Bombardier CL-600-2B16 N75KH which arrived the previous day - also departed on Monday 15 February but to the Gold Coast.

B-8131 has visited Cairns a couple of times in the last week and returned to Cairns Sunday evening before returning to Beijing in the wee small hours of Monday 15 February. A big day for the pilots!
Finally, as we also posted on our Facebook page last week, last Monday 8 February saw a 'King' tide which inundated a section of the Hamilton Island Airport apron.
The high tide nearly turned a little Cessna into a Floatplane!
