A Trio of Cessna Citation Bizjets Around CQ Airports - VH-MMC, VH-ACC, VH-PSU - Plus Much More!

On Wednesday 6 May, there was a trio of familiar Cessna Citation bizjets that were noted calling in and out of some Central Queensland Airports.

The familiar sight of Mackellar Mining Equipment / Flight Options (Australia) Cessna 560 Citation Ultra bizjet VH-MMC was back in Central Queensland with the sleek Citation noted arriving into Emerald Airport from its Sunshine Coast base.  At the time of writing, it appears that it was staying for at least the night.

UPDATE!  After staying for the night, VH-MMC departed Emerald Airport and returned to the Sunshine Coast on Thursday 7 May.

During the early part of the morning, Australian Country Choice Properties (Brisbane) Cessna 560 Citation V Encore bizjet VH-ACC was noted arriving into Biloela / Thangool Airport from its Archerfield base.  It then departed Thangool Airport for Injune Airport and then a pair of properties 'Dooloogarah' and 'Babbiloora'.  VH-ACC later returned to Injune Airport before flying to Roma Airport.

UPDATE!  On Thursday 7 May, VH-ACC departed Roma Airport and returned to Archerfield.

And the Queensland Police Service (Airwing) (State of Queensland) Cessna 560 Citation Ultra bizjet VH-PSU was noted calling into Gladstone Airport from Brisbane before later departing to complete airwork at Bundaberg Airport.  It then flew back to Brisbane

Meanwhile, on the lighter side of the corporate and light General Aviation (GA) movements into CQ over the last couple of days, on Wednesday 6 May, Brescon Beech B200 King Air VH-WXN was noted visiting Longreach Airport from the Toowoomba-Wellcamp Airport.  While Kirkhope Aviation (Victoria) Piper PA-31-350 Navajo Chieftain VH-ZUM was noted arriving into Emerald Airport from Roma Airport before it continued North.

UPDATE!  On Thursday 7 May, VH-ZUM flew back from its unknown destination to Emerald and then Roma Airports.

And Machjet (Machjet International) Hawker Beechcraft B200 King Air VH-ZSY looked to pass through Longreach Airport from Tennant Creek while heading to Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast.  It had passed through Longreach Airport on Tuesday 5 May while heading North.

Finally, a few lighties around CQ also on Tuesday 5 May included Orange-based Raytheon A36 Bonanza departing Rockhampton Airport on what appears to be a weekly run from the New South Wales city, while Austrek Aviation Beech B200 Super King Air VH-ZGD visited Rockhampton Airport and FKG Air (Redjet Aviation) Hawker Beechcraft B200GT VH-FKB visited Mackay Airport.

While Pilatus PC-12/47E VH-AAC was noted visiting Emerald Airport, along with New South Wales-based Piper PA-39-160 Turbo Twin Comanche VH-HTC which also visited Emerald Airport, arriving from its Lake Macquarie base via Cessnock, Armidale and Roma.  It later returned direct to Lake Macquarie.
