Three Cessna Citation Bizjets - VH-ZLE, VH-CCJ, VH-MMC - All Touch Down at Emerald Airport - Plus More!

On Tuesday 28 July, a trio of Cessna Citation bizjets were noted visiting Emerald Airport - and other CQ Airports - during what seems to be a busy day of flying.

Late on Monday 27 July, Corporate Aircraft Charter (South Australia) Cessna 550 Citation II bizjet VH-ZLE departed Brisbane for Longreach Airport.  It then popped into Blackall Airport.  From there, now in the wee small hours of Tuesday 28 July, VH-ZLE then flew across to Rockhampton Airport before it then flew back to Emerald Airport.  VH-ZLE then returned to Brisbane.

A little later in the morning also on Tuesday 28 July, Greensill Aviation Cessna 550 Citation Bravo bizjet VH-CCJ was noted visiting Emerald Airport from its Bundaberg Airport base.  It returned to the Rum City later in the day.

While also on Tuesday 28 July, Mackellar Mining Equipment / Flight Options (Australia) Cessna 560 Citation Ultra bizjet VH-MMC arrived into Emerald Airport from the Sunshine Coast via Biloela / Thangool Airport.  It later returned to the Sunny Coast.

UPDATE!  VH-MMC returned to Emerald Airport - along with visiting Rockhampton Airport - on Wednesday 29 July - see Blog post above!

Meanwhile, also on Tuesday 28 July, after arriving into Hamilton Island Airport from Sydney late last week, American-registered but Australian-based Gulfstream Aerospace G-V-SP (G550) bizjet N360LF was noted departing Hamo and returning to Sydney.

Finally, slightly smaller and noted visiting Rockhampton Airport, but on Monday 27 July, was the Queensland Police Service (Airwing) (State of Queensland) Cessna 208 Caravan VH-PSQ.  It arrived from the North and departed to Brisbane.  While Austrek Aviation Beech B200 King Air VH-WXO made its usual visit to Rockhampton Airport, arriving from Toowoomba and Archerfield before later departing direct to Toowoomba.

And down at Bundaberg Airport, Albury-based Pilatus PC-12/47E VH-FMM was noted visiting from the Gold Coast and Brisbane-based Piper PA-31 Navajo VH-DEQ was noted visiting from Archerfield but both on Monday 27 July.
