Nice United Aero Helicopters Sikorsky UH-60A Blackhawk Helicopter N360UH Passes Through Longreach Airport - Plus More!

On Saturday 29 July, a really nice helicopter in the form of United Aero Helicopters 1982-build Sikorsky UH-60A Black Hawk N360UH passed through Longreach Airport while reportedly heading up to Asia to completing aerial firefighting duties.

It looked to fly up from Camden in New South Wales and then later depart to Mount Isa.  N360UH is pictured above early on Sunday 30 July as it continued from Mount Isa to Darwin.

Of interest, N360UH arrived at Camden in November 2022 from the USA (along with N260UH) and is a former US Army Aviation machine which previously wore the serial number 81-23596.

Meanwhile, also on Saturday 29 July, LifeFlight (Aeromed) Canadair CL-600-2B16 Challenger 604 bizjet VH-OFB "Ambulance 624" was spotted arriving into Mackay Airport from Townsville.

It later departed to Brisbane before then flying back to Townsville.

Re-registered Essendon Aviation Services (Mackay, Queensland!!) Cessna S550 Citation S/2 bizjet VH-SQM departed Mackay Airport for Melbourne (Moorabbin).  It seems to have arrived back on Friday 14 July.

Shortstop Jet Charter Dassault Falcon 900C bizjet VH-OAA arrived into Bundaberg Airport from Brisbane.  It then departed to Melbourne (Essendon).

Avcair (Avgunn) LearJet 60 bizjet VH-ILJ flew out from Brisbane to Longreach Airport and then across to Rockhampton Airport.  It then looked to fly up to Cairns.

Edwards Coaches Cessna 441 Conquest II VH-OXY flew up from Armidale and Archerfield to Mackay Airport before then returning back to its Armidale base.

And Southern Airlines Rockwell 690A Turbo Commander VH-SOU departed Bundaberg Airport for the South before returning and then departing once again but this time to Gladstone Airport and then returning to Bundy yet again.
