A Trio of Cessna Citation Bizjets Call into Hamilton Island Airport - Plus More!

Friday 2 November was a busy day at Hamilton Island Airport with a nice trio of locally-based Cessna Citation bizjets noted coming and going.

Perhaps the most interesting to arrive was E C Menzies Aviation Cessna 525B CitationJet CJ3 N91GT.

The sleek CitationJet was noted arriving from Melbourne (Essendon) via the Balina/Byron Gateway Airport and it looked to be staying for at least the night.

The familiar sight of Homada Pty Ltd Cessna 560XL Citation XLS VH-XCU was also noted arriving into Hamo but from from Melbourne (Moorabbin) via Essendon.  It too looked to stay.

And rounding off the three visiting Citation bizjets on Friday 2 November was Australian Corporate Jet Centres Cessna 560 Citation Ultra VH-WFE which departed Hamilton Island Airport for Essendon and then the Balina/Byron Gateway Airport.  It had arrived direct from Essendon the previous day.

Meanwhile, one bizjet we missed visiting Hamilton Island Airport on Wednesday 31 October was the very familiar sight of Balmoral Air Dassault Falcon 2000LX bizjet VH-WIO which arrived from and later departed back to its Bankstown base.

Finally, it's worth noting that out West at Longreach Airport, the Queensland Government Airwing (State of Queensland) Raytheon Hawker 850XP bizjet VH-SGY was noted arriving from Brisbane and Winton during the afternoon on Thursday 1 November.  It returned to Brisbane on Friday 2 November.
