Australian Corporate Jet Centres (Victoria) Embraer EMB-145LR Regional Jet VH-JGR (ex JetGo) Passes Through Longreach Airport - Plus More

On Tuesday 24 May, a really nice visitor to (finally) return to Central Queensland, with Australian Corporate Jet Centres (Victoria) Embraer EMB-145LR regional jet VH-JGR noted passing through Longreach Airport on what appears to be a closed tourist charter flight.

The bright-red Embraer arrived from Ayres Rock and later departed to Cairns.

UPDATE!  On Thursday 26 May, VH-JGR flew into Hamilton Island Airport from Cairns.

UPDATE!  On Saturday 28 May, VH-JGR departed Hamilton Island Airport for Broken Hill and Melbourne (Essendon).

Of interest, VH-JGR was previously operated in Australia by JetGo Australia also as VH-JGR.  It was originally delivered to JetGo in early November 2017 and entered service with the fledgling airline soon after.  When JetGo was placed in voluntary administration and ceased operations in June 2018, VH-JGR spent time parked up at Townsville and then Cairns until mid-November 2020 when it was ferried to Melbourne (Essendon) for operations with Australian Corporate Jet Centres.

Meanwhile, also on Tuesday 24 May, Brisbane-based Teys Australia Cessna 525 Citation CJ2 bizjet VH-TEY was noted flying across from Biloela / Thangool Airport to Rockhampton Airport.  It looked to actually arrive into Bilo the previous day, flying from Archerfield via Miles Airport.  VH-TEY looks to be staying for the night at Rocky.

UPDATE!  On Wednesday 25 May, VH-TEY departed Rockhampton Airport and returned to Archerfield.

Finally, also on Tuesday 24 May, Brisbane-based Crockett Aviation Group (ex FIFO Jet P/L) Beech B200 King Air VH-FAQ was noted departing Rockhampton Airport for the Labona Station Airstrip within Adani Australia's (Bravus Mining & Resources) Carmichael Coal Mine site.  It then returned to Rocky before departing to Archerfield.  VH-FAQ had arrived into Rockhampton Airport from Archerfield, Brisbane and Chinchilla Airports late the previous day.

Property Maintenance Australia P/L Pilatus PC-12/47E VH-WJA also departed Rockhampton Airport but for Emerald Airport.  It then returned to Rocky before flying down to Brisbane and then Dubbo.  VH-WJA had arrived into Rockhampton Airport from Dubbo and Archerfield late the previous day.

While Wagga Air Centre (Mabena) SOCATA TBM-850 VH-PVM flew down from Mackay Airport to Kaiuroo Station on the Mackenzie River, 220 kilometres west of Rockhampton. In the afternoon, it then departed there to Emerald Airport and then Toowoomba.

And Brescon (Toowoomba) Beech B200 King Air turboprops VH-WXB and VH-WXN were both noted in the region.

VH-WXB landed at Rolleston Aerodrome from Toowoomba-Wellcamp, Chinchilla and Roma Airports before then departing back to Chinchilla and Wellcamp.

VH-WXN visited by local Clermont Aerodrome from Toowoomba-Wellcamp.
