Teys Australia Cessna 525 Citation CJ2 Bizjet VH-TEY Pops into Longreach Airport Twice - Plus More!

Before dawn on Monday 23 March, Brisbane-based Teys Australia Cessna 525 Citation CJ2 bizjet VH-TEY was noted arriving into Longreach Airport from Cessnock in New South Wales.  It had flown South from its Archerfield base during the afternoon on Sunday 22 March.  After appearing to take on fuel, VH-TEY then continued to RAAF Base Tindal at Katherine in the Northern Territory.

Then during the afternoon and evening, VH-TEY returned to Longreach Airport from Tindal and then continued back to Cessnock.  At the time of writing, VH-TEY is winging its way back to Archerfield.

Meanwhile, also late on Monday 23 March, the visiting AirMed Australia Cessna 510 Citation Mustang bizjet VH-SQY was noted departing Emerald Airport destined for Orange in New South Wales and then its Bankstown base.  However, at the time of writing, it was noted to have diverted to Coffs Harbour. 

VH-SQY had arrived into Emerald Airport from Bankstown via Taree during the afternoon on Saturday 21 March and then appeared to have broken down.  The diversion on Monday evening suggests perhaps it is still suffering from maintenance issues.

Of interest VH-SQY was noted using the radio callsign of "Airmed 998" for both its flights.

Finally, also on Monday 23 March, a pair of Corporate Air  / Vee H Aviation aircraft were noted coming and going at couple of Central Queensland Airports.

SAAB 340B VH-VEF was noted arriving into Theodore Airport presumably on a Fly-in Fly-out (FIFO) charter flights from Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast.  It later returned there.  While Cessna 441 VH-VEJ was noted arriving into Emerald Airport from the South before it then later departed to Mackay Airport.
