First visit for Australian Corporate Jet Centres (VH-OFJ) Hawker 800XP, weather was rather poor (lighting wise) but lucky enough to have a second chance with better lighting today.






Locally owned Zodiac 601 XL-B


Van's RV-4 (VH-XPV)




Columbia 400 LC41-550FG (VH-ODM)



Locally owned Cessna 182Q Skylane



Next aircraft to be painted (after Green Bird aka VH-ZXS), Lloyd Off-Shore Helicopters (VH-SYZ) AgustaWestland AW139 arrived from East Sale (via Albury for a fuel stop).

Thanks for the update Robert, great images. We have had OFJ through Sydney a couple of times now.

Thanks Grahame. Was the first Hawker 800 to visit to WGA, rather new to their fleet as well.

Not seen this far south too often is TWB based Austrek Air Charter VH-WXO Beechcraft B200 Super King Air. GA at NRA isn't easy to photograph due to the Bellman Hangar and tall cyclone (aka chain-link) fence.




Helicorp/Toll Helicopters VH-TJF AW139 called into WGA for fuel. Interestingly it no longer has Ambulance of NSW logos on it, now has ACT Gov and ACT Ambulance Service logos. Would've thought it would have both since it serves ACT and Southern NSW.

Surprised no one has mentioned the Korean Air 747-8 service which started earlier in the month.

Too early for most people? I haven't seen in the metal but have been tracking it regularly (well, at least partly with my 9yo looking for 748s)

Cool, thanks for the pics! So nice to see a new 747! A couple of weeks ago was lined up with a QF 747 beside me in HKG - so good to see.
