Hinterland Aviation Beech B200 King Air VH-HJS Calls into Central Queensland Airports - Plus More!

On Monday 9 March, Hinterland Aviation Beech B200 King Air VH-HJS was noted calling into some Central Queensland Airports while on a busy day of flying out of and back to its Cairns base.

VH-HJS was noted flying as 'HND420' and looked to arrive into Mackay Airport from Cairns.  It then continued to Brisbane before returning North to Bundaberg Airport and then Townsville and Cairns.

As we reported at the end of last week, VH-HJS was chartered by the Queensland Police Service (Airwing) / Queensland Government (State of Queensland) to complete prisoner transfer flights.  Fellow Hinterland Aviation King Air VH-HLJ completed a similar set of flights last Friday 6 March - see Blog post below.

Meanwhile, in light of the above information, also on Monday 9 March, the Queensland Police Service (Airwing) Cessna 560 Citation Ultra bizjet VH-PSU also took to the air, calling into Rockhampton Airport while flying from Cairns to Brisbane.

While also noted arriving into Rockhampton Airport, also on Monday 9 March, was Sydney Skydivers Pacific Aerospace PAC 750XL VH-XLC.  It touched down from Innisfail (where it has been operating of late) and later departed to Moree in New South Wales.

UPDATE!  On Tuesday 10 March, VH-XLC continued to Bankstown.

And also on Monday 9 March, Wagga Air Centre (Mabena) SOCATA TBM-850 VH-PVM was noted arriving into Biloela / Thangool Airport from Wagga Wagga and Taroom.

UPDATE!  On Tuesday 10 March, VH-PVM continued from Biloela / Thangool Airport to Gladstone Airport.

UPDATE!  On Wednesday 11 March, VH-PVM returned to Wagga Wagga from Gladstone Airport.

Finally, also Monday 9 March, the often visiting American-registered Eclipse EA500 bizjet N257AK was noted arriving back into the Whitsunday Airport at Shute Harbour from Archerfield.  It had flown down there from Shute last week.

UPDATE!  On Sunday 15 March, N257AK departed the Whitsunday Airport at Shute Harbour for Tamworth.
