MWP Racing Bombardier CL-600-2A12 Challenger 601 Bizjet VH-MXK Pops into Rockhampton Airport

On Monday 22 May, the smart little MWP Racing Bombardier CL-600-2A12 Challenger 601 bizjet VH-MXK was spotted visiting Rockhampton Airport.  It is pictured arriving from the Gold Coast.



After a short while on the ground, VH-MXK departed to Melbourne (Essendon) Airport.

Meanwhile, a couple of interesting light General Aviation (GA) aircraft were also spotted visiting Rockhampton Airport on Monday 22 May.  Cessna 208 Caravan VH-DJG popped in from Dalby.  It was also noted visiting Rocky on Saturday 20 May and twice more during last week.


Pekal Aviation of Boggabilla (NSW) Partenavia P.68B VH-JQM visited Rockhampton Airport from Goondiwindi.


And locally-based Atlass-Aerometrix (Atlass Aviation) Vulcanair (Partenavia) P.68C VH-KBO arrived from the Sunshine Coast.

Finally, over the course of Sunday 21 May and Monday 22 May, it appeared that Air Queensland Piper PA-31-350 Navajo Chieftain VH-XLB may have been completed a series of training flights, which included several landings and airwork at several Central Queensland Airports.

On Sunday, VH-XLB departed its Redcliffe base for Cairns, flying via Maryborough, Bundaberg, Gladstone, Rockhampton, Mackay, Hamilton Island and Townsville Airports.  After remaining parked overnight at Cairns, on Monday, VH-XLB departed Cairns and returned to Redcliffe flying via Mackay, Rockhampton, Gladstone, Bundaberg and Maryborough Airports.

What an adventure!
