Almost immediately VH-SGY returned to the air before landing once again at Rocky.  It then took on fuel before departing back to Brisbane via yet another missed approach at Gladstone Airport.

Meanwhile, on Monday 5 September, the Queensland Police Service (Airwing) Cessna 560 Citation Ultra bizjet VH-PSU was once again on prisoner transfer duties.  It was noted visiting Maryborough, Rockhampton, Mackay, Townsville and Brisbane Airports during a busy day of flying that started and finished at Cairns.
