Gulf Coast Aviation Cessna 510 Citation Mustang Bizjet VH-KXM Pops into Rockhampton Airport - Plus a Couple of Lighties!

Late on Thursday 11 May, Gulf Coast Aviation Cessna 510 Citation Mustang bizjet VH-KXM popped into Rockhampton Airport.  It arrived from Archerfield.

VH-KXM had earlier touched down at Archerfield from its Bankstown base.

At the time of writing, it appears that VH-KXM will depart Rocky for Vanrook Station near Normanton early on Friday 12 May.

UPDATE!  VH-KXM was noted passing back through Rockhampton Airport on Sunday 14 May, flying in from Vanrook Station and departing to Cairns.

Meanwhile, a couple of interesting light General Aviation (GA) aircraft were noted coming and going at Rockhampton Airport also on Thursday 11 May.

Carmi Aircharter Cirrus SR22 VH-XRR visited Rocky from its Sunshine Coast, while Beech 95-55 Baron VH-SJU departed back to its Stanthorpe base after arriving from there on Sunday 7 May.  Locally-registered Tartrus Aviation Piper PA-30 Twin Comanche VH-UCH departed to Longreach Airport after arriving the previous day from the Ballina/Byron Gateway Airport.  It looks to have been operating around Northern New South Wales in recent times.

Finally, permanently locally-based Cessna 172 VH-OCN and Beech B58P Baron VH-BLT both operated by Peace Aviation completed a return flights to Woorabinda and Emerald Airports respectively also on Thursday 11 May.
