A Couple of Nice Light GA Aircraft at Emerald Airport so far This Week

Over the last couple of days a few nice light General Aviation (GA) aircraft have been noted calling into Emerald Airport from various parts.

On Tuesday 22 March, Sundown Pastoral Company (of Bonogin in the Gold Coast Hinterland) Raytheon B300 Super King Air VH-NSI called in from Keytah Airport in New South Wales.

The Super King Air started its day at its Gold Coast base and returned there later on Tuesday.

Also visiting Emerald Airport on Tuesday 22 March was recently registered Pilatus PC-12/47 VH-DNG of "Bullawarrie" in Mungindi in New South Wales.  It flew in from Melbourne (Essendon) and Goondiwindi.  After spending most of the day on the ground, it returned to Goondiwindi later in the day.

On Monday 21 March, Brescon Beech B200 King Air VH-WXN operated from Brisbane into Emerald and then Clermont before returning to Emerald and Brisbane later in the day.  It then positioned back to its Toowoomba base a little later still.

Also on Monday 21 March, Toowoomba-based Wolff Aviation Hawker Beechcraft C90GTi VH-VWG was noted flying from Emerald to Rockhampton before returning South.

Over the last couple of days, General Aviation Maintenance (GAM) AeroCommander 500-S VH-UJU has again operated the Emerald to Barcaldine to Longreach and back freight rotation flights in place of the collapsed Advance Aviation - see more HERE.
