Thursday at Gladstone Airport - Citation Bizjet VH-CCJ - Navajo VH-PJU - Virgin E-190s VH-ZPK & VH-ZPH

Another great day of plane spotting at Gladstone Airport on Thursday 26 February with another bizjet calling in, and a pair of Virgin Australia Embraer jets touching down on scheduled services from and back to Brisbane.

Early on Thursday, Earth Commodities Cessna 550 Citation Bravo bizjet VH-CCJ touched down at Gladstone from Brisbane.  After around 30 minutes, it departed North to Mackay.  After some time up there, VH-CCJ then returned to Gladstone - again briefly - before returning to Brisbane.

Meanwhile, the run of larger Virgin Australia jets into the industrial city has continued with not one, but two Virgin Embraer E-190s calling into Gladstone on Thursday 26 February.  During the morning, VH-ZPK operated the VOZ1709/1712 return service from Brisbane, while late in the afternoon, VH-ZPH operated the VOZ1717/1720 return service from Brisbane.

I would assume that Virgin are flying additional passengers that may be coming to the area to assist with the post-Cyclone Marcia clean-up.

Finally, on the lighter side of the aircraft movements, Newlands Aviation / Redjet Aviation (of Toowoomba) Piper PA-31 also visited Gladstone for the day from Toowoomba.
