A Triple Treat of Bizjets Arrive into Hamilton Island Airport - New Falcon 900 VH-OAA - Global 5000 N667BB - Challenger 350 M-SGJS

On Saturday 18 March, a nice trio of bizjets were noted arriving into Hamilton Island Airport.

First to arrive was American-registered Bombardier BD-700-1A11 Global 5000 N667BB which touched down from Cairns.

A little later in the morning, Shortstop Jet Charter's brand new Dassault Falcon 900C VH-OAA arrived into Hamo from Melbourne (Essendon).

VH-OAA had only been delivered to the Shortstop Jet Charter in early February direct from the Dassault Aviation factory in France.

And in the early afternoon, Isle-of-Man registered Bombardier BD-100-1A10 Challenger 350 M-SGJS arrived from Queenstown (New Zealand) and the Gold Coast.

Each bizjet appears to be staying for at least the night.

Finally, on Thursday 16 March, Qantas Airways Boeing B737-838 VH-VZR operated as QFA866 from Sydney into Hamilton Island Airport but was unable to operate the return QFA867 due to a technical issue.

Consequently, fellow Qantas Boeing B737-838 VH-VXC positioned empty from Brisbane to Hamilton Island Airport as QFA6114 and was noted operating the (now) delayed QFA867 service from Hamo back to Sydney.

The broken down VH-VZR departed Hamilton Island Airport for Brisbane a short time later, positioning empty as QFA6124.
