VH-PPJ flew up to Cairns via Townsville on Friday 13 January before flying back South via a search for a missing boat off Rockhampton early on Saturday 14 January. The Dornier didn't land at Rockhampton Airport following the search and instead continued to Brisbane. VH-PPJ then departed Brisbane for Essendon.
Then on Sunday 15 January, VH-PPJ returned North from Essendon and landed at Hervey Bay (Fraser Coast) Airport. After being 'scheduled' to complete a local flight around the region, this was changed and instead, VH-PPJ continued North to Cairns.
Finally, on Monday 16 January, VH-PPJ flew into Brisbane from Cairns.
Of interest, as we've mentioned a few times on the Blog of late, Aerorescue (AMSA - Australian Maritime Safety Authority) also utilises Cobham Aviation-operated Bombardier Challenger CL-600-2B16 bizjet VH-XND "Rescue 660" out of Cairns Airport on a full-time basis.
