Also Visiting Rockhampton Airport This Week - Citation Bizjets VH-PSU & VH-FGK - And More!

As well as the exciting arrival of the new Mackay-based Embraer EMB-550 Legacy 500 bizjet N142GZ into Rockhampton Airport this week, there have also been a nice selection of other General Aviation (GA) aircraft including a pair of other bizjets.

Also due on Friday 13 February, The Queensland Police Service (Airwing) Cessna 560 Citation Ultra bizjet VH-PSU called in to Rockhampton.  VH-PSU has again had a busy week of flying, also calling into Rockhampton - amongst other CQ Airports - on Wednesday 11 February and Monday 9 February.  VH-PSU was also noted at Maryborough, Proserpine, Bundaberg and Mackay Airports this week.

On the lighter side of GA movements, Brisbane-based Pilatus PC-12/47E VH-AAD popped in on Thursday 12 February for the day from Archerfield, while, as mentioned below, Bishopp Aviation SOCATA TBM700 VH-VSV had a busy Wednesday 11 February, which included calling into Rockhampton Airport.
