On Friday 19 February, Pratt Aviation Bombardier BD-700-1A10 Global Express bizjet VH-VGX was photographed parked at a wet and miserable Mackay Airport, after it had earlier arrived from Townsville.
It appears that the Global Express is on a Queensland tour with it originally arriving into Cairns from Melbourne (Essendon) exactly a week ago.
At the time of writing, it appears that VH-VGX is staying at Mackay Airport for at least the night.
UPDATE! On Saturday 20 February, VH-VGX departed Mackay Airport and called into Gladstone Airport where it again seems to be spending the night - see Blog post above!
UPDATE! On Sunday 21 February, VH-VGX departed Gladstone Airport for Adelaide.
Meanwhile, another bizjet to be noted visiting the region, also on Friday 19 February, was Australian Country Choice Properties (Brisbane) Cessna 560 Citation V Encore bizjet VH-ACC. It looked to depart from Brisbane and call into Wellclose before flying to Charleville Airport and then back to Wellclose.
Finally, a couple of light General Aviation (GA) visitors to the region, also on Friday 19 February, included NQ Goldfields Beech 58 Baron VH-SNZ which visited Gladstone Airport from its Charters Towers Aerodrome base.
While the Queensland Police Service (Airwing) (State of Queensland) Raytheon B1900D VH-PSK looked to arrive into Rockhampton Airport from Cairns and later depart to Brisbane. Later, it flew up to Mackay Airport before then returning to Cairns via Townsville.
