Falconair (NSW) Dassault 900 Falcon Bizjet VH-CAD Departs Proserpine Airport - And Many Light GA Aircraft and Helicopters Start Departing Shute Harbour!

Also on Sunday 25 April, Falconair (NSW) Dassault 900 Falcon Mystere bizjet VH-CAD was noted departing Proserpine (Whitsunday Coast) Airport.  It looked to return to Sydney after arriving from there two days earlier.

I photographed VH-CAD sitting on the Prosie Airport apron on Saturday 24 April.

Also on Sunday 25 April, another nice bizjet in the region, visiting the Whitsunday Airport at Shute Harbour, Graham Aviation (Cairns) Cessna 510 Citation Mustang bizjet VH-FNI was noted departing there for Cairns before it then flew down to Hamilton Island Airport.

UPDATE!  On Monday 26 April, VH-FNI returned to Cairns from Hamo.

Meanwhile, also on Sunday 25 April, a nice arrival into Rockhampton Airport was South Australian-based Airborne Research Australia Diamond HK-36 TTC-ECO Motor Glider VH-EOS which arrived from the South-West and stayed. 

CromAir Cessna 414A Chancellor VH-CBT visited Hamilton Island Airport from its Bundaberg base. 

New South Wales-based Piper PA-39-160 Twin Comanche VH-LLL was noted departing Longreach Airport for Walgett.  It appears to have arrived at the end of last week. 

Finally, also on Sunday 25 April, various light General Aviation (GA) aircraft and helicopters were noted departing the Whitsunday Airport at Shute Harbour for various places following the Fly-in and Runway Dinner events held the previous day.

Cessna 210 VH-CSD returned to Pandora. 

Bell Helicopter Textron 206L-4 VH-PRW called into Rockhampton Airport before continuing to the Sunshine Coast. 

Robinson R66 VH-RAO also called into Rocky before heading to Hervey Bay (Fraser Coast) Airport.

Robinson R66 VH-ESJ and R44 VH-MWU arrived into Rockhampton Airport together from Shute with VH-ESJ then departing to the Sunshine Coast and VH-MWU departing to near Brisbane. 

Robinson R44 helicopter VH-VJM also called into Rockhampton Airport from Shute.

UPDATE!  On Monday 26 April, VH-VJM continued to Hervey Bay (Fraser Coast) Airport. 

And Touchdown Helicopters Eurocopter EC120B VH-YTT also popped into Rockhampton Airport before heading inland to Roma Airport and ports South.

At Proserpine (Whitsunday Coast) Airport, the Paspaley Pearling Grumman G-73AT Turbo Mallard VH-PPT "Pearling 66" departed for Burketown before returning to Darwin.  This was sadly early than expected due to the cancellation of its proposed tours around the Whitsundays.

And Beech A36 Bonanza VH-JPJ flew down from the Lakeside Airpark at Bloomsbury near Proserpine to Roma and Mudgee Airports. 

Also, Piper Aircraft Corp PA-28-235 Dakota VH-KIF finally made it into the Whitsunday Airport at Shute Harbour after failed attempts the previous couple of days.
