Queensland Election Campaign Continues with Government Hawker 850XP Bizjet VH-SGY and Super King Airs VH-ZGD & VH-EWQ Spotted at Mackay Airport

During the afternoon on Sunday 5 November, the Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk flew into Mackay Airport from Brisbane on board The Queensland Government (State of Queensland) Raytheon Hawker 850XP bizjet VH-SGY.  She came to the sugar city to continue her campaign for the looming State Election.

As has been the case over the last week, VH-SGY was joined by a pair of Super King Air turboprops – Easternwell Group Beech B300 Super King Air VH-EWQ and Austrek Aviation Beech B200 Super King Air VH-ZGD – which also both arrived into Mackay Airport from Toowoomba and Brisbane also on Sunday 5 November.

After staying for the night, all three aircraft were noted departing Mackay Airport just after lunchtime on Monday 6 November bound for the newly renamed Toowoomba Wellcamp Airport.  All three aircraft then returned to Brisbane.

UPDATE!  On Tuesday 7 November, it appeared that VH-SGY, along with VH-EWQ and VH-ZGD all visited Kingaroy Airport.

Meanwhile, the State Opposition leader Tim Nichols was noted departing Proserpine (Whitsunday Coast) Airport late on Friday 3 November on board his chartered Fly Corporate (Corporate Air) SAAB 340B+ (WT) VH-VEP.

It is believed that fellow Fly Corporate SAAB 340 VH-VEM flew Mr Nichols and entourage to Bundaberg Airport from Brisbane also on Monday 6 November.  VH-VEM was scheduled to return to Brisbane from Bundy early on Tuesday 7 November.
