Vanguard Aviation Cessna 525 CitationJet1 Bizjet VH-DAA Pops into Rockhampton Airport - Plus More!

On Friday 27 January, Vanguard Aviation Cessna 525 CitationJet1 bizjet VH-DAA was spotted parked on the northern (usually military) hardstand at Rockhampton Airport by local plane spotter Kayanne H.  VH-DAA had earlier arrived from its Archerfield base.

After being parked for most of the day, the smart little Citation returned to Archerfield.

Another bizjet that was noted visiting Rockhampton Airport twice on Friday 27 January was the Queensland Police Service (Airwing) Cessna 560 Citation Ultra bizjet VH-PSU. The citation looked to be yet again operating the three-times-a-week prisoner transfer flights for the Police with it also noted to have visited Mackay, Townsville and Brisbane Airports while starting and finishing its day in Cairns.  VH-PSU also looks to have operated the prisoner transfer flights Wednesday 25 January, calling into Rockhampton and Mackay Airports again, along with Bundaberg Airport during yet another busy day of flying.

A little smaller - and not quite a corporate bizjet - but also noted visiting Rockhampton Airport on Friday 27 January was the familiar sight of Cessna 208 Caravan VH-DJG which had earlier arrived from its home at Natal Downs - a cattle property near Clermont.  It later departed to Archerfield.

And a little smaller still visitor spotted parked at Rockhampton Airport on Friday 27 January was Brisbane-based Amateur built Lancair ES VH-DFH.

Of interest, locally-based R-Mach Aviation Lancair 4 VH-XVP has also recently been in the air, returning to Rockhampton Airport on Monday 23 January from Archerfield via Bankstown.

Finally, it's worth noting that a visitor to Rocky last week in the form of recently registered Cirrus SR22 VH-XRR had again passed through CQ this time calling into Biloela / Thangool Airport while on another flight from Townsville to its Sunshine Coast base.
