A Nice Triple Treat of Bizjets Call into Hamilton Island Airport Thursday

On Thursday 22 September, there was a nice triple treat of bizjets to call into Hamilton Island Airport, including a nice American registered Gulfstream.

Gulfstream Aerospace G-V-SP (G550) N919PE was noted arriving from Cairns and looked to be spending the night.

MWP Racing Bombardier CL-600-2A12 Challenger 601 VH-MXK made its second visit to CQ calling into Hamilton Island Airport from the Gold Coast.  After about an hour, it positioned across to Proserpine (Whitsunday Coast) Airport where it looks to be staying for a while - most likely no more parking is available on Hamo!

And Brenzil Dassault Falcon 7X VH-CRW touched down at Hamo once again from its Brisbane base.  It too looked to be staying.

Meanwhile, after touching down at Hamilton Island Airport earlier in the week, GSA Industries Bombardier CL-600-2B16 Challenger 601 VH-NSB departed on Wednesday 21 September to the Gold Coast and Melbourne (Essendon).

And as mentioned below, on Tuesday 20 September, Shortstop Jet Charter British Aerospace BAe-125-1000B VH-LMP touched down at Hamo from Essendon and later departed to Sydney.

Finally, also on Thursday 22 September, LifeFlight (ex Careflight Queensland) (Aeromed) LearJet 45 bizjet VH-VVI "Ambulance 451" has yet again visited CQ, calling into Rockhampton Airport from Brisbane.  At the time of writing, it is currently flying to Blackall and will later fly to Longreach before returning to Brisbane.
