Alliance Airlines Fokker F-100 VH-XWT Back at Rockhampton Airport Saturday - Plus a Few Nice Lighties on Friday

For the second week in a row Alliance Airlines Fokker F-100 VH-XWT has operated what looked to be a sports charter in and out of Rockhampton Airport on Saturday 19 March.  On this occasion it touched down from Cairns early in the day as UTY3381 before returning to Cairns later in the evening as UTY3382.

Meanwhile, a couple of nice light General Aviation (GA) aircraft were noted visiting Rockhampton Airport on Friday 18 March including a nice pair that visited from Toowoomba.

Redjet Aviation Piper PA-31 Navajo VH-PJU called in from Toowoomba via Hervey Bay while FKG Air Hawker Beechcraft G58 Baron VH-FKI called in from Toowoomba via Archerfield.

Both aircraft departed back to Toowoomba via return stops later on Friday.

Funnily enough, a local pair of light GA aircraft operated flights from Rockhampton down to Toowoomba on Friday 18 March with the Rockhampton Aero Club's Beech 58 Baron VH- KCN and Cessna U206F VH-IQU both flying South and back to Rocky.

Of interest, both aircraft have had a busy week with VH-KCN also noted flying to Emerald, Longreach and Collinsville via Tartrus Airstrip this week, while VH-IQU was noted flying to Mackay, Mundubberra and Springsure.

Finally, noted calling into Rockhampton Airport on Friday 18 March was the Queensland Police Service (Airwing) Raytheon B1900D VH-PSK which had another busy day of flying up and down the Queensland coast.
