Queensland Government Raytheon Hawker 850XP Bizjet VH-SGY at Gladstone and Rockhampton Airports

On Friday 5 August, the Queensland Government Raytheon Hawker 850XP bizjet VH-SGY looked to operate a training flight up to parts of Central Queensland from its Brisbane base.

It initially completed airwork around Gladstone Airport - including at least one practice ILS approach - before continuing North and landing at Rockhampton Airport.  It then immediately took off and landed once again at Rocky,

After some time on the ground, VH-SGY returned to Gladstone and completed one final approach at Gladstone Airport before then later returning to Brisbane.

Meanwhile,  the Queensland Police Service (Airwing) Raytheon B1900D VH-PSK was also noted calling into Rockhampton Airport (amongst other places) on Friday 5 August while on a busy day of prisoner transfer flights.  It looked to also call into Mackay Airport on Thursday 4 August, and also complete another full day of flights up and down the Queensland coast on Wednesday 3 August.

Of interest, it appeared that on Monday 1 August, Queensland Police Service (Airwing) Cessna 208 Caravan VH-PSY looked to fly into Rockhampton and Mackay Airports from its Cairns base perhaps also on prisoner transfer flights.

Sincere thanks to local plane spotter 'IAD' for taking the time to capture and send through these great photos!
