Alliance Airlines Fokker F-70 VH-JFB Calls into Hamilton Island Airport - Plus More Corporate Visitors!

A couple of more interesting visitors into Hamilton Island Airport over the last couple of days including Alliance Airlines Fokker F-70 jet VH-JFB which looked to operate a charter from and back to Brisbane on Friday 10 March.

VH-JFB touched down from Brisbane as UTY550 and after a short time on the ground, it returned there but as UTY553.

As mentioned below, a couple of corporate bizjets were noted arriving into Hamilton Island Airport during the week, and on Saturday 11 March, Shortstop Jet Charter Learjet 31ER bizjet VH-OVX was noted arriving into Hamo from Ayres Rock.  It had arrived into the 'Red Centre' on Thursday 9 March from Melbourne (Essendon) and Adelaide.

On Friday 10 March, Brisbane-based Pilatus PC-12/47E VH-AAD was noted arriving into Hamilton Island Airport from Emerald.  It departed to Archerfield a short time later.

Finally, on Thursday 9 March, a pair of Cessna Citation bizjets were noted arriving in Hamilton Island Airport from different parts of the state.  NetJets (Australasian Jet) Cessna 501 Citation I/SP VH-FUM was noted arriving at Hamo from Melbourne (Essendon) via Charleville.  It appears to have stayed parked on the Island.  While Machjet (Machjet International) Cessna 525 Citation CJ1 bizjet VH-SIY was noted visiting Hamilton Island Airport after flying North from its Sunshine Coast base.  It is believed to have returned to the Sunny Coast a little later in the day.
