A Nice Pair Cessna Citation Bizjets at Longreach Airport - VH-MOR and VH-PSU - And a Few Lighties too!

After a couple of nice bizjets visited over the weekend - see Blog Post below - on Wednesday 5 October, there were a nice pair of Cessna Citation bizjets to call into Longreach Airport.

Early in the morning, Brisbane-based Cessna 525A CitationJet2 VH-MOR called in from Mount Isa and Darwin.  It later departed to Archerfield.

VH-MOR had flown into Mount Isa on Tuesday 4 October.

Meanwhile. departing Longreach for Emerald and Mackay Airports Wednesday morning after arriving the previous day, was the Queensland Police Service (Airwing) Cessna 560 Citation Ultra VH-PSU.  It had flown in from Brisbane, Roma and Charleville on Tuesday 4 October.

UPDATE!  On Thursday 6 October, VH-PSU finished its trip 'around CQ' by flying from Mackay to Rockhampton and Gladstone Airports before it returned to Brisbane.

Meanwhile, a few interesting light General Aviation (GA) aircraft have also been noted calling into Longreach Airport over the last couple of days including Flight One (Services) Beech B200 King Air VH-FON which flew in from its Archerfield base and departed to Cloncurry on Tuesday 4 October.

Redjet Aviation Piper PA-31 Navajo VH-PJU also flew into Longreach from Archerfield (via Roma) and departed to Cloncurry.  It had earlier flown from its Toowoomba base to Archerfield.

Another King Air in the form of Brescon Beech B200 King Air VH-WXN touched down from Mount Isa and Elliott Airport in the Northern Territory also on Tuesday 4 October.  It later departed to the Brisbane West Wellcamp Airport near Toowoomba.

Finally, up the road at Barcaldine Airport, also on Tuesday 4 October, former CQ-based Piper PA-31 VH-DER visited from its new Toowoomba base.  It departed to Hervey Bay (Fraser Coast) before returning to Toowoomba.
