Cessna Citation Bizjets VH-YWS & VH-XCU Call into Hamilton Island Airport - Plus More!

On Friday 3 May, a couple of nice Cessna Citation bizjets were noted arriving into what is now a busy Hamilton Island Airport.

During the afternoon, perhaps the first visit to Central Queensland by Brisbane-based Cessna 525 CitationJet M2 VH-YWS.  It arrived from Archerfield base.

While earlier in the day, the familiar sight of Homada Pty Ltd Cessna 560XL Citation XLS bizjet VH-XCU was noted arriving into Hamilton Island Airport from Melbourne (Moorabbin) via Melbourne (Essendon).

At the time of writing, both bizjets remain parked at Hamo, along with the Chinese-registered Bombardier BD-700-1A10 Global 6000 bizjet B-8197 which arrived at Hamilton Island Airport on Wednesday 1 May.

After arriving from Sydney earlier in the day,  MKAir7X Dassault Falcon 7X bizjet M-GMKM departed back there late on Thursday 2 May.

Finally, a trio of Sydney-based light General Aviation (GA) aircraft to be noted visiting Hamilton Island Airport also on Friday 3 May included Sydney-based Beech 35-C33 Bonanza VH-FJF and Cessna 182 VH-MJB.  While Basair Australia Cessna 206 VH-BXZ also looked to be flying as a part of the group as they all arrived from Emu Park and Rockhampton Airports and later departed to Cairns.
