East-Coast Parachuting Aircraft Ferry North and South Through Central Queensland Airports

Over recent weeks I've noted a few 'East Coast' parachuting aircraft ferry North and South through some Central Queensland Airports.

The first I noticed was in late March when Sydney Skydivers Pacific Aerospace PAC 750XL VH-XLC which passed through Bundaberg, heading South to Port Macquarie.  It had recently been operating at Innisfail.

Initially 'Replacing' VH-XLC at Innisfail was Cessna 185A VH-KVW.  Recently, beautifully presented 1959-build De-Havilland Canada DHC-2/A1 Beaver VH-AAX ferried into Innisfail from Wilton Airfield in New South Wales.  It was noted departing Moranbah for Townsville on Saturday 19 April.

Other ferry flights I've noted have included Australian Skydive Cessna 208 Caravan VH-ZMV which passed through Longreach Airport on Sunday 13 April heading North from Tyagarah to Cairns; while fellow Caravan VH-UMV ferried South from Tully to Tyagarah on Friday 11 April.
