Various Bizjets at Central Queensland Airports Including Challenger 605 Bizjet B-LOL at Hamilton Island

Yet more interesting bizjet movements throughout Central Queensland this week, probably highlighted by the return of Macau-based Bombardier CL-600-2B16 Challenger 605 bizjet B-LOL to Hamilton Island Airport on Wednesday 6 November.  B-LOL has been noted on Hamo at various times over the life of the CQ Plane Spotting Blog.  It departed back to Sydney on Thursday 7 November.

Also at Hamilton Island this week was Private Dassault Falcon 2000EX bizjet F-GZLX, which is believed to be operated by Balmoral Air while their Falcon 2000EX VH-WIO is overseas.  F-GZLX arrived at Hamo from Mudgee and Bankstown on Sunday 3 November.  It departed back to Banktown on Thursday 7 November.

Finally, Sunshine Air Services Raytheon Hawker 800XP VH-VRC was also noted at Hamilton Island Airport this week, arriving from Melbourne (Essendon) last Saturday 2 November.  VH-VRC departed back there on Wednesday 6 November.

Other bizjets around Central Queensland included the Queensland Government Raytheon Hawker 850XP bizjet VH-SGY which popped into Gladstone briefly on Wednesday 6 November from Brisbane.  It later departed to Cairns.  VH-SGY was also noted at Biloela / Thangool Airport last Friday 1 November, arriving from Townsville and departing to the Sunshine Coast.

Finally, Gulf Coast Aviation Cessna 510 Citation Mustang VH-KXM was noted arriving into Rockhampton Airport from Bankstown last Monday 28 October.  It departed to Normanton, but returned to the beef capital on Wednesday 30 October from Vanrook Station (Normanton), before later departing back to Bankstown.
