A surprise visitor into Longreach Airport on Thursday 8 March with Careflight (NT) Hawker Beechcraft 400A bizjet VH-EIH arriving directly from Sydney. It had arrived into there from its Darwin base via Alice Springs, in the Northern Territory on Wednesday 7 March and is presumably heading 'home'. It later departed to Darwin and was noted using the flight number and radio callsign of “Careflight 44”.
VH-EIH is one of three Raytheon / Hawker Beechcraft 400A corporate bizjets that Careflight operate in the Northern Territory alongside an Agusta AW139 helicopter and six Raytheon / Hawker Beechcraft B200 King Airs .
Sincere thanks to local plane spotter Calen H for taking the time to capture and send through this photo of a great visitor to Longreach!
