A Few Other Bizjets Around Central Queensland Airports This Week

As posted below, earlier this week, Emerald Airport came 'alive' over Sunday 20 October and Monday 21 October with the arrival and departure of the Queensland Government (State of Queensland) Airwing Raytheon Hawker 850XP bizjet VH-SGY, along with the Queensland Police Service (Airwing) Cessna 560 Citation Ultra bizjet VH-PSU, and other aircraft, bringing Ministers and support staff for a Community Cabinet meeting.

On Monday 21 October, VH-SGY and VH-PSU both departed for Cairns.

Taking their place at Emerald Airport, on Tuesday 22 October was Mackellar Mining Equipment / Flight Options (Australia) Cessna 560 Citation Ultra VH-SJP, which arrived from the Sunshine Coast.  At the time of writing, it was scheduled to depart back to the Sunny Coast on Thursday 24 October.

Gulf Coast Aviation Cessna 510 Citation Mustang VH-KXM was also a visitor to Emerald Airport on Tuesday 22 October, arriving from Normanton.  It had earlier popped into Longreach, enroute from Bankstown to Normanton.  It later departed to Toowoomba.

At the time of writing, VH-KXM was due to return to Emerald on Thursday 24 October, with information suggesting that it was to return from Toowoomba, before continuing back to Normanton.

One other familiar Citation bizjet in the form of Jetstream Aviation's bright and colourful Cessna 550 Citation II - VH-VDF - visited the Whitsunday Airport at Shute Harbour on Monday 21 October arriving from, and later departing back to, the Sunshine Coast.
