The Metro flights that depart Emerald each weeknight for Brisbane now call into Rockhampton rather than Biloela / Thangool Airport. The 'outbound' TFX111 flight (Monday to Thursday) and TFX113 flight (Friday) now departs Emerald and flys via Rockhampton before heading onto Brisbane. Interestingly, the 'inbound' flights to Emerald - TFX108 (Monday) and TFX110 (Tuesday to Friday) - remained unchanged, and still fly from Brisbane to Emerald via Thangool.
It appears that this link into Rocky is to compensate for the apparent removal of the TFX161 (MKY-ROK-BNE) and TFX162 (BNE-ROK-MKY) runs that have not operated over this last week.

Rocky now sees the North-bound TFX132 flight land each week-morning on its long journey to Mount Isa from Brisbane via Rockhampton, Townsville and Richmond.
This Metro that flys into Mount Isa turns-around and operates later in the day as TFX129/131 flying from Mount Isa into Richmond, and then onto Mackay and Brisbane.
Mackay sees one of the Toll ATR 42-300(F) call in each weekday morning while heading North to Cairns from Brisbane as TFX122.
