PH-KBX Fokker 70 (MSN 11547) of the Dutch Government, at Perth Airport – Friday 28 October 2016.
Arriving from Denpasar on runway 21 at 7:09pm as ‘KLM 9927’, as it is operated by KLM Cityhopper. First visit to Perth, with the Dutch Royal Family on their official tour of Australia. King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima of the Netherlands are visiting, along with Foreign Minister Bert Koenders and Trade Minister Liliane Ploumen. Their official duties in Perth will be on 31 October and 1 November 2016, then the aircraft will depart to Canberra. The registration KBX stands for Koningin BeatriX (Queen Beatrix, although she is actually a Princess). As KLM Cityhopper is retiring their Fokker 70s in mid-2017, there will be no air and ground crews to operate this aircraft and its operating costs are increasing as it is 20 years old. The Fokker 70 can only travel in hops of around 2,000 kilometres, requiring multiple stops. It is to be replaced next year, reportedly by a Boeing 737-700 BBJ. The King is trained to fly the Fokker 70 and often does. He is now training to fly the 737-700.

VH-LBA Cessna 441 Conquest (MSN 441-0042) owned by Stamford Park Investments/Aerohire, at Jandakot Airport - Fri 28 October 2016. Formerly operated locally by Skippers Aviation and later by Jetcraft Aviation in Brisbane. It was then grounded at Jetcraft's Brisbane base from around 2008, as it had exceeded the Conquest's maximum 22,500 hours wing spar life. It then received dispensation to ferry to Adelaide (in 2010?), where it was stripped of many parts. It was registered to Stamford Park Investments in WA in March 2013.

VH-NMO Grumman G-111 Albatross (MSN G-464) of Catalina Airlines Pty Ltd, at Jandakot Airport – Fri 28 October 2016. This was the last Grumman Albatross built. A total of 418 Grumman Albatross aircraft were built between 1947 and 1961. Built in 1961, ex Bu No 148329, 9056 (JMSDF), N88999, PK-PAM, N26PR, N42MY. Since arriving at Jandakot in April 2012, it only made a few flights in February 2013. With a maximum take-off weight of 13882kg, it exceeds the weight limits for operation from Jandakot, and had to apply for special dispensation to be parked here. The owner, Mack McCormack, initially planned to base the Albatross in Broome and use the aircraft to fly tourist and charter flights in and around the Kimberley region of Western Australia. Mr McCormack later announced that he intended to begin flying boat flights Perth’s Swan River to the Abrolhos Islands, off the coast of Geraldton from April 2013, with operations to be expanded into the Kimberley region later. Despite some promotional flights from Geraldton to the Abrolhos Islands in February 2013, the aircraft has since remained on the ground at Jandakot Airport. Recently moved to a different parking spot, it is now parked near Casair's hangar. It is soon to move to Queensland, as there was apparently too much State Government red tape in trying to launch large seaplane operations here in Western Australia. Photo © David Eyre
