The Queensland Government Raytheon Hawker 850XP bizjet VH-SGY has been to Central Queensland every day so far this week - and it is due to be at Emerald early next for a Queensland Government Community Cabinet.

On Monday 14 October, VH-SGY flew from Brisbane to Barcaldine and Longreach.  It later returned to Brisbane from Longreach - again via Barcaldine.  On Tuesday 15 October, VH-SGY made a return flight into Emerald from Brisbane.  Finally, on Wednesday 16 October, VH-SGY flew from Brisbane to Rockhampton and then Bundaberg.  It later returned to Brisbane.

As mentioned, VH-SGY - and possibly other Government aircraft - are due to fly into Emerald Airport on Sunday 20 October for another Community Cabinet meeting over the course of the Sunday and then on Monday.

Also on Wednesday 16 October, Rockhampton plane spotter Ben O captured the Queensland Police Service (Airwing) Cessna 560 Citation Ultra bizjet VH-PSU in the middle of a busy day's flying.  VH-PSU started the day in Brisbane and during the morning flew into Rockhampton, Mackay, Townsville and Cairns.  Later, VH-PSU returned Townsville and Rockhampton (where it is pictured below), and then later Bundaberg, before returning to Brisbane.
