A Few GA Visitors to Longreach Airport - Incl Brescon Beech B200 VH-WXN & Bill Peach / Corporate Air SAAB 340B VH-VEM

Interesting to note that Toowoomba-based Brescon Beech B200 VH-WXN has made four visits to Longreach Airport over the last week or so.

It has made two return trips from Toowoomba to the Brisbane West Wellcamp Airport and then to Century Mine via Longreach and Cloncurry.  On Thursday 21 May, VH-WXN called into Longreach from Cloncurry and departed to Wellcamp and then Toowoomba.

Also calling into Longreach Airport on Thursday 21 May was Port MacQuarie-based Beech A36 Bonanza VH-WBP along with West Australia-based SOCATA TBM-850 (700N) VH-TBM.

Van's RV-10 VH-IXG departed home to Inverell in New South Wales on Wednesday 20 May.  It had arrived in the Central West the previous week.

Also heading home on Wednesday 20 May but to the Sunshine Coast was Cirrus SR22 VH-MCX.

One notable arrival on Tuesday 19 May was Corporate Air / Vee H Aviation SAAB 340B VH-VEM.  I'm told that the aircraft has been spotted in the Northern Territory wearing a 'Bill Peach Journeys' sticker and is thus operating a tour through regional Australia.

Brisbane-based Pilatus PC-12/47E VH-VTF also called into Longreach on Tuesday 19 May but from Archerfield.  It departed to Glenormiston and Mount Isa.

And last week on Friday 15 May, Great Western Aviation Piper PA-31 flew into Longreach from Archerfield and departed to Brisbane, while Avlease Cessna 402C VH-UBZ touched down from Alice Springs on Tuesday 12 May.
