On Wednesday 10 August, the often familiar sight in CQ of Earth Commodities Cessna 550 Citation Bravo bizjet VH-CCJ called into Mackay Airport. On this occasion, it touched down from Cairns and Townsville, having flown up to Cairns, via Mount Isa, from its Brisbane base on Tuesday 9 August.
At the time of writing, VH-CCJ looks to be due to depart Mackay for Rockhampton Airport early on Thursday 11 August before heading onward to Bundaberg Airport in the early afternoon.
Meanwhile, during the evening on Wednesday 10 August, LifeFlight (ex Careflight Queensland) (Aeromed) LearJet 45 bizjet VH-VVI also called into Mackay Airport as "Ambulance 451" from Brisbane. It later departed to Hervey Bay (Fraser Coast) Airport before returning to Brisbane.
And back on last Thursday 4 August, fellow LifeFlight LearJet 45 VH-CXJ "Ambulance 452" called into Mackay Airport from Townsville and Cairns before departing to Brisbane. Then in the wee small hours of Friday 5 August, VH-CXJ "Ambulance 452" popped into Rockhampton Airport from Brisbane before returning to Townsville.
Finally, I also note that Professional Jet Aviation Cessna 525 Citation CJ1 bizjet VH-CDG is also due to call into both Rockhampton and Bundaberg Airports on Thursday 11 August from its Gold Coast base.
