Albury-based Cessna 525 CitationJet CJ1+ Bizjet VH-JSZ Pops into Mackay Airport - Plus More!

A nice arrival into Mackay Airport on Tuesday 3 December with Albury (New South Wales) based Cessna 525 CitationJet CJ1+ bizjet VH-JSZ touching down from Albury via Sydney.

After a couple of hours on the ground, VH-JSZ returned to Sydney and then Albury.

My interest in this registration marking was peaked as I remember this marking being worn by a Dash-8-100 in the early 2000's.  That Dash-8-100 became VH-QQC with Skytrans Airlines in Cairns and then Maroomba Airlines in Western Australia.

Meanwhile, also on Tuesday 3 December, LifeFlight (Aeromed) LearJet 45 bizjet VH-VVI "Ambulance 451" was also noted visiting Mackay Airport.  It arrived from Townsville and later departed to the Toowoomba-Wellcamp Airport before heading to Brisbane and eventually returning to Townsville.

And also in the wee small hours of Tuesday 3 December, LifeFlight (Aeromed) Bombardier Challenger 604 bizjet VH-URR "Ambulance 604" was noted visiting Roma Airport from Brisbane.  VH-URR hasn't been in the air for over a month!

While on Monday 2 December, the Queensland Police Service (Airwing) (State of Queensland) Cessna 560 Citation Ultra bizjet VH-PSU was noted calling into Rockhampton and Mackay Airports during a busy day of flying out of and back to Cairns.  It also called into these two places last Thursday 28 November and Friday 29 November.

Also on Friday 29 November, the Queensland Government Airwing (State of Queensland) Raytheon B300 Super King Air VH-SGQ was noted visiting Bundaberg Airport.

Finally, very late on Sunday 1 December, Corporate Aircraft Charter (South Australia) Cessna 550 Citation II bizjet VH-ZLE was noted arriving into Charleville Airport from Brisbane.  Then in the wee small hours of Monday 2 December, it then flew to Quilpie before returning to Brisbane.

My suspicions continue to believe that VH-ZLE is operating for LifeFlight on medical evacuation flights.

Sincere thanks to local plane spotter 'JM' for taking the time to capture and send through these great photos!
