Embraer EMB-550 Legacy 500 N142GZ Pops in - as Cessna 525 CitationJet1 VH-DAA Departs Rockhampton Airport

On the Show Day public holiday, local plane spotter 'IAD' ventured to Rockhampton early on Thursday 11 June and captured some nice bizjet action.

Embraer EMB-550 Legacy 500 bizjet N142GZ touched down from its Mackay base.

After collecting some passengers, it promptly departed to Bankstown.

Also on Thursday 11 June, Light Jets Australia Cessna 525 CitationJet1 bizjet VH-DAA was captured by 'IAD' as it departed Rocky to Archerfield.

It had arrived the previous day from Biloela / Thangool Airport.

Finally, captured resting on the Northern end of the Rockhampton Airport apron on Thursday 11 June after arriving the previous evening was Surveillance Australia / Australian Customs and Border Protection Service (Cobham Aviation) Dash-8-300 VH-ZZE.

VH-ZZE is indeed a rare aircraft to grace the skies of Central Queensland with this its second time featuring on the CQ Plane Spotting Blog.  Of interest, VH-ZZE was noted using the radio callsign of "Customs 44".

Sincere thanks to 'IAD' for capturing and sending through these great photos!  Certainly an enjoyable way to spend a public holiday!
