Queensland Police Service (Airwing) (State of Queensland) Cessna 560 Citation Ultra Bizjet VH-PSU Back at Rockhampton Airport Again - Plus More!

On Friday 22 May, and for the third successive day, the Queensland Police Service (Airwing) (State of Queensland) Cessna 560 Citation Ultra bizjet VH-PSU was spotted visiting Rockhampton Airport on what appeared to be another training flight.

As it has done on the other occasions it visited the beef capital, VH-PSU arrived from Brisbane, although it completed a missed approach prior to coming back around and landing.  VH-PSU then departed but completed a simulated engine failure on take-off before coming back around and landing again.  A short time later, VH-PSU actually departed Rockhampton Airport and returned to Brisbane.

Meanwhile, the Queensland Police Service (Airwing) (State of Queensland) Raytheon B1900D VH-PSK was also noted visiting Rockhampton Airport - twice - also on Friday 22 May.

While returning to Rockhampton Airport for the second time this week, also on Friday 22 May, was Gulf Coast Aviation Textron Aviation (Cessna) T206H VH-KQM.  It again landed from its Vanrook Station home up near Normanton via Townsville.

Out at Longreach Airport, also on Friday 22 May, Brisbane-based Hewitt Cattle Australia P/L SOCATA TBM 700 VH-PGA was noted departing to Ambalindum Station in the Northern Territory.  It had arrived the previous day from Archerfield and Moura Airport.

UPDATE!  On Saturday 23 May, VH-PGA ferried back through Moura Airport while returning from Ambalindum Station to Archerfield.

Finally, noted visiting Rockhampton Airport but on Thursday 21 May, was Brisbane-based Pilatus PC-12/47E VH-VTF.  It arrived from Archerfield and departed to Glen Innes in New South Wales.
