Over the last few days, yet more Australian-based bizjets have been noted calling into Hamilton Island Airport, including at least one recently delivered little corporate beauty.
Brand new Cessna 525 Citation M2 VH-WMY of Mitchell Water Australia touched down at Hamilton Island directly from Melbourne (Moorabbin) Airport on Wednesday 8 April. It then operated a return flight to Ayr and back before overnighting. It is actually pictured in Adelaide on Tuesday 7 April, so it has had a busy week!
On Thursday 9 April, VH-WMY departed Hamo for Archerfield.
Also on Thursday 9 April, Business Aviation Solutions Bombardier CL-600-2B16 Challenger 604 bizjet VH-BLM departed back to its Gold Coast base. It had arrived on Sunday 5 April.
While touching down late on Thursday 9 April was Marcplan Charter Embraer EMB-135BJ Legacy bizjet VH-VLT.
Shortstop Jet Charter British Aerospace BAe-125-1000B VH-LMP continues to visit Hamilton Island Airport from Melbourne (Essendon). After arriving on Friday 3 April, VH-LMP departed back to Essendon on Wednesday 8 April.
And arriving into Hamo on Wednesday 8 April was Silver Linings Aviation Cessna 680 Citation Sovereign bizjet VH-ZEK, along with Hawker Beechcraft G58 VH-EZD which called in from its Monto base.
Finally, on Tuesday 7 April, Alliance Airlines Fokker F-100 VH-XWQ was noted flying into Hamilton Island from Cairns as UTY2666. I presume this flight was operated on behalf of QantasLink. VH-XWQ departed a short time later back to Cairns as UTY2667.
