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

It's been a busy week so far for the Queensland Government (State of Queensland) Airwing Raytheon Hawker 850XP bizjet VH-SGY.  Earlier in the week, it visited Longreach and Roma Airports - see Blog post below - and on Wednesday 18 January, it again took to the air and looked to complete training at both Gladstone and Rockhampton Airports.

VH-SGY flew North from Brisbane and landed and parked for a short time on a taxiway at Gladstone Airport before departing a short time later for Rockhampton Airport.  At Rocky, VH-SGY landed, back-tracked  and took off from Runway 15 before completing two missed approaches and then landing again on Runway 15.  After parking for a short while, VH-SGY again took off and completed a circuit and landed once again.  It immediately back-tracked and took off for yet another two circuits including a missed approach followed by landing. After again parking for a short time, VH-SGY then departed back to Brisbane.

Meanwhile, also on Wednesday 18 January, the Queensland Police Service (Airwing) Cessna 560 Citation Ultra bizjet VH-PSU was back in the air on prisoner transfer flights calling into Mackay, Rockhampton (twice) and Bundaberg Airports while on a busy day of flying that started and finished in Cairns.
