A Few Lighties Around CQ Airports - Including Some Cirrus SR22s with Familiar Regos - VH-PSU & VH-VOM - Plus More!

On Sunday 17 July, there were a few light General Aviation (GA) aircraft noted visiting some Central Queensland Airports.  Of most interest were a couple of newly registered Cirrus SR22 aircraft which wear familiar registration markings which were previously worn by other aircraft hat frequently visited CQ.

Victoria based Cirrus SR22-G6 GTS VH-PSU was noted flying up from the Sunshine Coast to Mackay Airport and then Hamilton Island Airport.  It flew up from Victoria abut a week ago.

The registration marking, VH-PSU, was previous worn by the Queensland Police Service (Airwing) (State of Queensland) Cessna 560 Citation Ultra bizjet.  As mentioned previously, it was re-registered as VH-IXT to WA-based Revesco Aviation at the start of 2021.

Townsville-based Cirrus SR22-G6 GTS VH-VOM looked to be flying around the Mackay region - possibly landing at the Palmyra Airstrip.

The registration marking, VH-VOM, was previously worn by a Virgin Australia Boeing B737-800.
