A Few Other Lighties Also Calling into Emerald Airport Thursday

It was interesting to note that on Thursday 10 March a few interesting light General Aviation (GA) aircraft called into Emerald Airport flying in and to various locations.

As mentioned below, Vanderfield Pilatus PC-12/47 corporate turbo-prop VH-WPH visited Emerald on Thursday flying in from Saint George and departing to Mackay.  It also called in on Tuesday 8 March.

Redjet Aviation Piper PA-31 Navajo VH-PJU called in twice over the course of Thursday - and also on Friday 11 March - flying between its Toowoomba base and Wandoan.

Newcastle Flight Services (in New South Wales) Piper PA-31 Navajo VH-IEK called in from Archerfield and Mackay before returning to Archerfield.

Wolff Aviation Hawker Beechcraft C90GTi VH-VWG arrived from its Toowoomba base.

The Salvation Army's Robinson R66 VH-VVU helicopter is also believed to have touched down from the Sunshine Coast and Rockhampton.

Also visiting from Rockhampton was Beech B58P Baron VH-BLT which I believe is utilised by Peace Aviation out of Rocky.

Finally, on Tuesday 8 March it appears that Seair Pacific (Istlecote) Cessna 208 Caravan VH-LMZ called into Emerald Airport for fuel while on a Fly-in Fly-out (FIFO) charter flight from the Fraser Coast.  VH-LMZ touched down at Emerald from Maryborough and Rolleston before continuing to Wanella Station (near Coppabella).  It later returned South to Hervey Bay.

A busy day!
