Multiple King Air Arrivals - Plus Skytrans Dash-8s - Make it a Busy Couple of Days at Clermont Aerodrome too!

Over the latter part of this week, there have been quite a lot of arrivals into Clermont Aerodrome - including no less than five King Air aircraft visiting on Thursday 19 July.

First up was KJM Contractors Raytheon B200 King Air VH-KMS, which arrived from, and departed back to Brisbane.  It is pictured during another recent visit to Clermont.

Then a series of three Australasian Jet King Airs popped into Clermont Aerodrome.  These included Beech B200 VH-ZMP and Hawker Beechcraft B200 VH-ZMW, which both arrived from Brisbane, and later departed to Archerfield.  Also visiting was Beech B200 King Air VH-ZMO (pictured below last week also at Clermont Aerodrome) which arrived from, and departed to Bourke in New South Wales.

Later, Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) Raytheon B200 King Air VH-FDB visited Clermont Aerodrome twice in the space of a few hours flying over different routes to and from Clermont.

That makes five King Airs!

Meanwhile, arriving on Thursday 19 July, and then departing on Friday 20 July, were the 'usual' four Skytrans Airlines Fly-in Fly-out (FIFO) charters from Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast.  These were operated by Dash-8's VH-QQH, VH-QQL, VH-QQM, and VH-QQN which is pictured at Clermont Aerodrome on Friday 20 July before it departed to Brisbane as SKP869.

It is also worth noting that one of these Dash-8's flew CMQ-MKY-CMQ-MKY-CMQ over the couple of days, and that one also overnighted at Townsville on Thursday 19 July, before returning to Clermont Friday morning.

Other visitors to Clermont Aerodrome on Friday 20 July included Barrier Aviation Cessna 402C VH-LKC and JM Kelly Project Builders Cessna 310 VH-FFA - which is pictured parked waiting for its passengers to arrive so it could depart back to its homebase of Rockhampton Airport.

Wish I was there on Thursday to see the King(s)!!
