RAAF Dassault Falcon 7X Bizjet A56-001 "Envoy 29" Continues from Mackay Airport to Rockhampton Airport and then South - Plus More!

On Wednesday 20 April, Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Dassault Falcon 7X bizjet A56-001 as "Envoy 29" flew down from Mackay Airport and was spotted arriving into Rockhampton Airport.

It looked to bring Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce to town for a series of engagements.

A56-001 "Envoy 29" then continued down to Brisbane.

Meanwhile, also on Wednesday 20 April, privately owned and operated (Australian Corporate Jet Centres) Beech B200 King Air VH-OWN "Envoy 80" was also noted visiting Mackay Airport for the second day in-a-row, while again operating for the RAAF's VIP 34 Squadron.

This time, it looked to arrive from Canberra and Tamworth before later returning direct to Canberra.

Finally, also on Wednesday 20 April, also privately owned and operated (Mitchell Air / Australian Corporate Jet Centres) Bombardier BD-700-1A10 Global 6000 bizjet VH-OFX was noted operating for the RAAF's VIP 34 Squadron.  It arrived into Rockhampton Airport from Cairns and Townsville (pictured) as "Envoy 60".

VH-OFX had arrived into Far North Queensland from Canberra and Melbourne (Tullamarine) the previous day.

UPDATE!  On Thursday 21 April, VH-OFX as "Envoy 60" departed Rockhampton Airport and returned to Tullamarine and then Canberra.

Sincere thanks to local plane spotters John L and Graham A for allowing us to share these great photos of a couple of great visitors for the upcoming Federal Election!
