A Couple of Bizjets Come and Go at CQ Airports Over the Weekend - Citation VH-MMC - Falcon 900 VH-OAA - Legacy 550 N142GZ

A couple of familiar locally-based corporate bizjets were noted coming and going from some Central Queensland Airports over the weekend.

Mackellar Mining Equipment / Flight Options (Australia) Cessna 560 Citation Ultra VH-MMC was back in CQ, touching down at Emerald Airport on Saturday 9 December from its Sunshine Coast base.  It then returned to the Sunny Coast on Sunday 10 December.

Of interest, VH-MMC was 'scheduled' to fly into Biloela / Thangool Airport from the Sunshine Coast on Wednesday 6 December but seemed to encounter a technical problem and returned to the Sunny Coast soon after departing.  VH-MMC also looked to complete a local flight out of the Sunshine Coast and back on Thursday 7 December.

Also on Saturday 9 December, Embraer EMB-550 Legacy 500 N142GZ returned to its Mackay Airport base from Adelaide after heading there a week ago.  It then departed Mackay Airport once again and this time completed a return flight to Brisbane.

UPDATE!  On Monday 11 December, N142GZ departed Mackay Airport for Brisbane once again but on this occasion remained for at least the night!

Finally, on Sunday 10 December, Shortstop Jet Charter's Dassault Falcon 900C VH-OAA arrived into Hamilton Island Airport from its Melbourne (Essendon) base.  It looks to be spending at least the night - which is good for me as I head to Hamo on Monday 11 December and thus I might be able to get a photograph of it!

UPDATE!  Alas I was unable to get a photo of VH-OAA - Also it departed Hamo and returned to Essendon on Tuesday 12 December.

FURTHER UPDATE!  VH-OAA arrived back into Hamilton Island Airport, again from Essendon, on Wednesday 13 December - and no, I was still unable to get a photo!
