American-Registered Eclipse EA500 Bizjet N257AK Back at the Whitsunday Airport at Shute Harbour for its Weekly Visit

Now a weekly visitor - and quite possibly not worth reporting any more (?) - on Monday 31 August, the often visiting American-registered Eclipse EA500 bizjet N257AK was noted arriving back into the Whitsunday Airport at Shute Harbour from Archerfield.  The sleek little corporate bizjet is reportedly based at Archerfield.

UPDATE!  N257AK returned to Archerfield on Thursday 3 September.

Meanwhile, also noted arriving into the Whitsunday Airport at Shute Harbour, but on Sunday 30 August, was American-registered (but Australian-based) SOCATA TBM 700 N700RU.  It looked to arrive from Mareeba.

N700RU had arrived into Far North Queensland last Thursday 27 August.

UPDATE!  On Friday 4 September, N700RU departed the Whitsunday Airport at Shute Harbour and returned to Archerfield.

And as posted below, at Proserpine (Whitsunday Coast) Airport, also on Sunday 30 August, Gulf Aircraft Cessna 680 Citation Sovereign bizjet VH-PYN was noted departing to Brisbane.  It had arrived into Prosie from there on Friday 28 August.

Finally, at Rockhampton Airport, also on Monday 31 August, Austrek Aviation Beech B200 King Air VH-WXO made another visit, this time arriving from Toowoomba and Archerfield before later departing direct to Toowoomba.

While further out West, on Saturday 29 August, Cairns-based Cessna 206 VH-SQX was noted passing through Emerald Airport while flying from Innisfail to Roma Airport.  It was then spotted below passing through Longreach Airport on Sunday 30 August while flying back from Roma Airport to Innisfail via Charleville and Longreach Airports.
