Mitchell Air / Australian Corporate Jet Centres Bombardier Global 6000 Bizjet VH-OFX Calls into Hamilton Island Airport - Plus More!

The Global Express looked to arrive from and later depart back to its Melbourne (Essendon) base.

Also calling into Hamilton Island Airport, also from Essendon was Linfox Express Charter / Air National Australia Canadair CL-600-2B16 Challenger 605 VH-LEF.  It appears to be staying on Hamo for at least the night.

UPDATE!  On Tuesday 29 June, VH-LEF departed Hamilton Island Airport and returned to Essendon.

Meanwhile, also on Monday 28 June, Moorabbin Aviation Services (Victoria) Cessna S550 Citation SII bizjet VH-JLU was noted arriving into Proserpine (Whitsunday Coast) Airport.  At the time of writing it appears to be staying at Prosie for at least the night.

UPDATE!  On Monday 5 July, VH-JLU finally departed Proserpine Airport and returned to Essendon.

And slightly out of the region, but Avia Aviation (Victoria) Cessna 510 Citation Mustang bizjet VH-MSU popped into Winton Airport while flying up from Melbourne (Moorabbin) to Cairns via Lethbridge, Quilpie and Winton Airports.

Finally, also on Monday 28 June, Awesome Aviation (of Perth in Western Australia) Beech 1900D VH-JYA called into both Rockhampton and Mackay Airports during a busy day of flying.  It arrived into Rocky from Cairns and Townsville before departing to Brisbane.  It then flew back up to Cairns from Brisbane, via Mackay and Townsville Airports.

This definitely looks like VH-JYA is being utilised on the Queensland Police Service prisoner transfer runs up and down the Queensland coast.

Moreover, it is believed that VH-JYA may have re-located to a Cairns-based operator.

And Beech 95-B55 VH-MYM touched down at Rockhampton Airport from its Gayndah base before it then it continued to Middlemount Aerodrome.  During the afternoon, VH-MYM returned to Rocky and Gayndah Aerodrome.

Sincere thanks to the Sunshine Coast Plane Spotting Facebook page for allowing us to share this great photo of VH-OFX!
