A Trio of Bizjets Kick off a Great Week at Hamilton Island Airport on Monday

It's a big week of aircraft movements at Hamilton Island Airport with the return of Qantas mainline services on later on this week, however on Monday 30 June, a trio of bizjets were noted calling in that have got the week of plane spotting at Hamo off to a great start!

Perhaps the nicest to call in was Macau-based Bombardier CL-600-2B16 Challenger 605 B-LOL, which arrived early in the morning from Cairns.  It had earlier arrived from Hong Kong.

Also touching down early on Monday was Australian Corporate Jet Centres / Mitchell Air Cessna 560 Citation Ultra VH-WFE, which flew in from Melbourne (Essendon) Airport.

After about an hour on the ground, it departed back to Essendon.

Finally, completing the trio of bizjets on Monday 30 June was (believed to be) EHC Holdings (USA) Dassault Falcon 900EX N311JA.  Reports suggest that it arrived from Ayres Rock via Townsville, and later departed to Brisbane.

It's worth noting that Sundown Pastoral Company (of Bonogin in the Gold Coast Hinterland) Raytheon B300 Super King Air VH-NSI called in from the Gold Coast on Monday as well.

Finally, on Saturday 28 June, Sunshine Air Services Raytheon Hawker 800XP VH-VRC called into Hamilton Island briefly from Melbourne (Essendon).  Also, in response to a cancelled flight in the wake of the much publicised power failure at Sydney Airport's Terminal 2 last Friday 27 June, Jetstar Airways operated an additional flight into Hamo from and back to Sydney on Saturday 28 June, with A320 VH-VQR operating as JST7302/7303.
