The Falcon arrived shortly before Virgin Australia's evening ATR 72-500 service from Brisbane, which was operated by VH-FVU.
Both were photographed on the Gladstone Airport apron by Jamie C.
Jamie reports that VH-CRW then departed Gladstone Airport, but then much to his surprise, came back and operated three touch-and-go landings on the main runway! It then departed back to Brisbane.
We also discovered that VH-LEX is powered by a 118hp 4-cylinder Lycoming engine, which can propel the aircraft to an average cruise speed of 150 knots, with an endurance (including reserves) of approximately 9-10 hours.
Outside the hangar, we noted local Cessna 210 VH-TET - the aircraft we recently took a flight on from Gladstone to Great Keppel Island - stay tuned to the Blog for this trip report!!
