American-Registered Eclipse EA500 Bizjet N257AK Completes Airwork at Maryborough and Hervey Bay (Fraser Coast) Airports - Plus More!

On Friday 9 December, a nice little corporate bizjet that we haven't seen around the region for a little while in the form of American-Registered Eclipse EA500 Bizjet N257AK, was noted completing airwork at both Maryborough and Hervey Bay (Fraser Coast) Airports while on a flight out of and back to Archerfield.

Meanwhile, also on Friday 9 December, a couple of other familiar bizjets to be noted visiting around the region included Navair Flight Operations Embraer EMB-500 Phenom 100 bizjet VH-LXZ as "Navair 131" which flew down from Mackay Airport to Cessnock.  It looked to have arrived the previous day from Bankstown via Cessnock.

Fellow Jampair P/L (Navair Flight Operations) Embraer EMB-505 Phenom 300E bizjet VH-NSQ as "Navair 129" was noted departing Hamilton Island Airport for Bankstown.  It too flew up the previous day.

Shortstop Jet Charter Dassault Falcon 900C bizjet VH-OAA visited Hamilton Island Airport once again.  This time, it looked to arrive from and then later depart back its Melbourne (Essendon) base.

While Bowenville (near Toowoomba) based Cessna 525 CitationJet CJ1+ bizjet VH-JSZ flew up from Archerfield to Rockhampton Airport before flying down to Dalby and Armidale and then back to Archerfield.

And LifeFlight (Aeromed) Bombardier Challenger 604 bizjet VH-URR "Ambulance 604" popped into Hervey Bay (Fraser Coast) Airport during the evening, while flying up from Brisbane to Townsville.

Finally, also on Friday 9 December, the Queensland Government Airwing (State of Queensland) Raytheon B300 Super King Air VH-SGQ arrived into Rockhampton Airport from Cairns and Townsville and later departed to Brisbane. It then returned directly to Townsville and Cairns.

New South Wales-based Piper PA-30 Twin Comanche VH-UQR flew back down from the Whitsunday Airport at Shute Harbour to Roma Airport and then back to Bankstown.  It had flown up earlier in the week.

And Clermont-based (but Mackay-registered) Mooney M20J VH-NWF departed Clermont Aerodrome for Archerfield.

UPDATE!  On Monday 12 December, VH-NWF flew up to Rockhampton Airport from Caboolture.  It flew up to there from Archerfield on Sunday 11 December.
