And a Couple of Local Bizjets Come and Go at Hamilton Island Airport

It's been a pretty quiet week over on Hamilton Island Airport, however a pair of Australian-based bizjets were noted paying the Great Barrier Reef Airport a visit.

On Monday 24 April, Marcplan Charter Gulfstream G-IV-X (G450) VH-MBP was noted arriving at Hamo.  It remained parked there until Saturday 29 April when it departed and looked to be heading towards Adelaide.

Sadly, its exact movements are not known.

And touching down at Hamilton Island Airport on Sunday 30 April was Aeromil Pacific / Flight Options (Australia) Cessna 650 Citation III bizjet VH-SPJ.  It touched down from Sydney and looks to be spending at least the night.

Meanwhile, a few interesting light General Aviation (GA) aircraft have also been noted visiting Hamilton Island Airport over the last few days including Flight-Tech Aviation (Townsville Airlines) Beech B200 King Air VH-WZN which made a late evening visit from and back to its Cairns base on Sunday 30 April.

While touching down at Hamo from Archerfield on Saturday 29 April was Brisbane-based Cessna 340 VH-LKM.  It looks due to return there on Monday 1 May.

Finally, over the last week, both of Regional Air's Piper PA-31-350 VH-RKD and Gippaero GA-8 Airvan VH-OHN continue to operate private charter flights into Hamilton Island Airport from their Mackay Airport base.  Regional Air is CQ's newest airline and they offer great special fares for locals to escape to the Whitsundays out of Mackay - check out their website:
