A Couple of Night Time Bizjet Visitors to CQ Airports incl Careflight (NT) Beech 400A VH-EIH "Careflight 44" at Longreach Airport

A surprise visitor into Longreach Airport late on Friday 29 June with Careflight (NT) Hawker Beechcraft 400A bizjet VH-EIH  arriving directly from Sydney.  It had arrived into there from its Darwin base via Alice Springs and Broken Hill over the course of Thursday 28 June and Friday 29 June, and was presumably heading 'home'.

It later departed to Darwin and was noted using the flight number and radio callsign of  “Careflight 44”.

VH-EIH is one of three Raytheon / Hawker Beechcraft 400A corporate bizjets that Careflight operate in the Northern Territory alongside an Agusta AW139 helicopter and six Raytheon / Hawker Beechcraft B200 King Airs.

Of interest, also at Longreach Airport but on Thursday 28 June, the familiar sight of Gulf Coast Aviation Cessna 510 Citation Mustang bizjet VH-KXM was back, calling in from Cairns and Vanrook Station and later departing to Bankstown.

Meanwhile, at Rockhampton Airport, there were a couple of interesting arrivals very late also on Friday 29 June, which we presume were on medical retrieval flights. 

Business Aviation Solutions Dassault Mystere Falcon 50 VH-FJQ arrived from the Gold Coast and later departed directly to Auckland in New Zealand.

While the Queensland Government Airwing (State of Queensland) Raytheon B300 Super King Air VH-SGQ completed a return flight from and back to Brisbane.
