Graham Aviation (Cairns) Cessna 510 Citation Mustang Bizjet VH-FMZ Calls into Hamilton Island Airport Again - Plus More!

On Sunday 5 February, Graham Aviation (Cairns) Cessna 510 Citation Mustang bizjet VH-FMZ was noted arriving into Hamilton Island Airport from its Mareeba base via Cairns. It seems to be becoming a regular weekend visitor with it also visiting the previous two weekends as posted below.

Although on this occasion, VH-FMZ flew back to Cairns and then back to Hamo and then back to Cairns once again and finally back to Mareeba.

Meanwhile, also on Sunday 5 February, New South Wales based Cessna 182T VH-MAG flew down from Mackay Airport to Roma Airport and then Narrabri and Bathurst.  It had arrived from Bathurst on Friday 3 February.

Cessna 208B Supervan 900 Skydiving Aircraft VH-XLF flew down from Lakeside Airpark to Bankstown via Moree at the completion of its most recent 'deployment' to the Whitsundays for parachuting operations.

And Mackay-based Eurocopter AS 350 B3 Squirrel VH-XBO flew down from the Nebo area to Biloela / Thangool Airport and Toowoomba-Wellcamp before it then continued down to Tamworth and Camden. 

Finally, on Saturday 4 February, RDO Equipment Co. (ex Vanderfield) Cessna 182 VH-JQC flew from Emerald Airport to Clermont Aerodrome and back to Emerald Airport.  It seems to be based at Emerald Airport having arrived in December last year!

And Townsville-based Forster Helicopters Robinson R66 helicopter VH-DRP was seen flying around the Whitsundays out of the Whitsunday Airport at Shute Harbour.
