UPDATE! Presumably due to the rather inclement weather passing over the Northern part of Queensland and in particular, the Gulf Country, VH-KXM was noted 'diverting' from its planned destination of Normanton to Vanrook Station and then Karumba where it eventually landed. On Thursday 11 March, VH-KXM was noted flying between Normanton and Mareeba before eventually returning to Karumba.
Also calling into Longreach Airport this week for fuel were a pair of Air Link (Dubbo) Piper PA-31 Navajos. VH-DVR called into Longreach on Tuesday 8 March while ferrying North from Dubbo to Normanton, while on Wednesday 9 March VH-MZF ferried South from Normanton to Longreach and onward to Charleville and Dubbo.
For a little while now, Air Link has been operating regular flights from Normanton to Mornington Island in Far North Queensland.
