A Couple of Cessna Citation Bizjets - VH-KXM & VH-DAA - Around CQ Airports

On Sunday 29 October a pair of familiar Australian corporate bizjets were once again noted visiting various CQ Airports.

Gulf Coast Aviation Cessna 510 Citation Mustang bizjet VH-KXM arrived into Rockhampton Airport from Cairns and Normanton, while Vanguard Aviation Cessna 525 CitationJet1 bizjet VH-DAA arrived into Bundaberg Airport from Archerfield via what looked to be airwork at Biloela / Thangool Airport.

UPDATE! On Monday 30 October, VH-DAA departed Bundaberg Airport and looked to (according to flight tracking websites) visit Adelaide and Sydney Airports before returning to Archerfield.  A big day!

UPDATE!  On Wednesday 1 November, VH-KXM departed Rockhampton Airport for Emerald Airport.  It later returned to Normanton.

Also over the course of the weekend, a corporate turboprop aircraft also noted at CQ Airport was AeroCommander 690-A VH-ATF which is flown by Steve Baxter, the investor and entrepreneur from Brisbane who is one of the 'sharks' on the Australian television series 'Shark Tank'.  VH-ATF initially called into Rockhampton Airport from Archerfield on Thursday 26 October and returned South the next day.  It then returned to Rocky on Saturday 28 October before continuing to Emerald Airport where it stayed for the night.  On Sunday 29 October, VH-ATF returned to Rockhampton Airport once again before returning to Archerfield.

UPDATE!  On Wednesday 1 November, VH-ATF flew into Bundaberg Airport from Archerfield.
