Busy Barcaldine Airport This Week!

Aside from the regular QantasLink Dash-8 visits, the normally quiet Barcaldine Airport has had a busy start to the week, with the Queensland Government (State of Queensland) Raytheon Hawker 850XP bizjet VH-SGY arriving from Ayr and Brisbane on Monday 22 April.  After staying overnight, VH-SGY departed early on Tuesday 23 April for Brisbane.

Hinterland Aviation and Skytrans Airlines (presumably) fly-in fly-out (FIFO) charters continue into Barcaldine on a semi-regular schedule, with Hinterland's Cessna 404 VH-TFO arriving from Cairns as HND411 also on Monday.  It later departed for Jundah and Windorah.

Meanwhile, on Wednesday 24 April, Hinterland Aviation Cessna 208 Caravan VH-CVN touched down at Barcaldine from Cairns as HND626.  It later departed for Townsville and Cairns.
