After taking on fuel, local plane spotter Greg W captured some photos as VH-KXL departed Longreach Airport for Lizard Island and then Cairns.
Meanwhile, also over the weekend Longreach Airport played host to the familiar sight of Beech B200 King Air VH-ODI of Dick Lang's Dessert-Air Safaris' as it looked to complete yet another tourist flight into the Central West. It arrived from Innamincka in South Australia on Saturday 18 August and departed to Birdsville on Sunday 19 August.
Also on Sunday 19 August, Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Beech B350 Super King Air A32-675 as "Beaufort 25" was noted departing Longreach Airport for Cairns. Of interest, on Friday 19 August, fellow RAAF Super King Air A32-673 as "Dingo 70" was noted departing Roma Airport for Townville.
