The attractive Citation bizjet appears to be staying on Hamo for at least the night.

Meanwhile, also on Monday 29 January, Hopair (of Cairns) Cessna 337E Skymaster VH-OIQ was also noted arriving into Hamilton Island Airport but from Toowoomba.  It seems to been flying around the Southern states and South Queensland.  While on Saturday 27 January, Hawker Beechcraft G58 Baron VH-EZD arrived from its Monto base.

Finally, LifeFlight (Aeromed) LearJet 45 bizjet VH-CXJ "Ambulance 452" has had a busy couple of days popping into both Mackay and Proserpine (Whitsunday Coast) Airports.  During the afternoon on Sunday 28 January, VH-CXJ arrived into Mackay Airport from Townsville and later departed to Brisbane on what looked to be a medevac flight.  While late on Monday 29 January, VH-CXJ was noted completing what looked to be training at Proserpine (Whitsunday Coast) Airport, flying from and back to Townsville.

UPDATE!  On Wednesday 31 January, all aircraft mentioned above all departed Hamilton Island for differing parts.  VH-XCJ departed to Sydney and then Essendon.  VH-OIQ departed to the Gold Coast after completing a local flight on Tuesday 30 January.  VH-EZD departed back to its Monto base.

UPDATE!  Also on Wednesday 31 January, Brisbane-based Pilatus PC-12/47E VH-AAD arrived into Hamilton Island Airport from Brunette Downs via Mount Isa and Gunpowder Mine.  It is due to depart to Archerfield on Thursday 1 February.
