It later departed to back to Townsville where it remains parked due to the obvious parking restrictions on Hamilton Island given all the arrivals over the last couple of days.
A little later, another exotic bizjet in the form of VistaJet Malta Bombardier BD-700-1A10 Global 6000 9H-VJN also touched down on Hamilton Island but as 'VJT869V' from Honolulu and Cairns.
It too later departed Hamo, ferrying back to Cairns,
Finally, a pair of locally-based bizjets also visited Hamilton Island Airport on Thursday 1 October with Balmoral Air (operated for Hamilton Island's owner, and well-known vineyard owner, Bob Oatley) Dassault Falcon 2000LX VH-WIO (shown above) visiting for part of the day from its Bankstown base, while Silver Linings Aviation Cessna 680 Citation Sovereign VH-ZEK was also noted calling into Hamo from Bankstown but looked to stay for the night.
Early indications suggest that there might even be more locally-based bizjets arriving and departing Hamilton Island Airport on Friday 2 October. Wow!
