Cessna Aircraft Co Cessna T240 (TTx) N362CS Passes Through Longreach Airport - Plus More!

An interesting visitor into Longreach Airport on Thursday 3 December was the Cessna Aircraft Company's own Cessna T240 (TTx) demonstration aircraft N362CS, which touched down from Darwin and Mount Isa.

After taking on fuel, N362CS departed to the Sunshine Coast where I assume it will (again) take up residence with locally-based Aeromil Pacific.

Aeromil Pacific demonstrated N362CS at various locations and to various operators during the middle part of this year - including the Rockhampton Aero Club.

Meanwhile, another aircraft to call into Longreach Airport on a ferry flight over the last couple of days was Regional Express (REX) SAAB 340B VH-ZLK which called into Longreach very late on Wednesday 2 December from Mount Isa using the Pel-Air Express flight number and callsign PFY9859.  After taking on fuel, VH-ZLK continued to Lismore in Northern New South Wales.

Finally, Aviair (of Kununurra, Western Australia) Cessna 208 VH-LNO was due to return to Kununurra via Longreach on Wednesday 2 December following a period of maintenance at Redcliffe in South-East Queensland.  It looks to have called into Blackall - rather than Longreach - before continuing onto Mount Isa and Kununurra.

VH-LNO actually looked to have called into Barcaldine on early October while flying South.
