Also Popping into Longreach Airport Over the Weekend

As well as the Queensland Government Airwing (State of Queensland) Raytheon Hawker 850XP bizjet VH-SGY calling into Longreach Airport over the weekend, there were also a couple of interesting light General Aviation (GA) aircraft to also be noted at the Central West hub.

Calling in from Mount Isa on Saturday 27 September was Scone-based Redbank Aviation / Pays Helicopters Piper PA-31-350 VH-MKC.  It departed to Charleville on Sunday 28 September.

Also on Sunday 28 September, Vanderfield Pilatus PC-12/47 VH-WPH arrived from Dalby and earlier Toowoomba.  At the time of writing, it was due to depart to Emerald early on Monday 29 September.

Locally-based Air Central West Beech 58 Baron VH-TNR called in from Roma and later departed to Thargomindah.

Later on Sunday 28 September, Kununurra-based Aviair (formerly Slingair Heliwork) Cessna 208B Caravan VH-LNN touched down from Mount Isa late in the early evening.  It later departed for Redcliffe where it is believed that the aircraft is to undergo maintenance.
