Visiting Central Queensland for the first time in 2018 on Monday 19 February was the Avcair (Earth Commodities) Cessna 550 Citation Bravo bizjet VH-CCJ. As with its previous visits, VH-CCJ flew North from Brisbane early in the morning and touched down at Gladstone Airport briefly before continuing North to Mackay Airport.
After around a couple of hours on the ground, VH-CCJ returned to Gladstone Airport where it was parked up for the night.
At the time of writing, as with its previous visits, VH-CCJ is due to depart Gladstone Airport for Bundaberg Airport early on Tuesday 20 February. It is then scheduled to return to Brisbane.
UPDATE! Indeed on Tuesday 20 February, VH-CCJ flew from Gladstone Airport into Bundaberg Airport. It then returned to Brisbane later in the day.
Of interest, the Earth Commodities Group supplies a large variety of products from hard rock quarries in Gladstone and Mackay, and from their mineral sands division via Sunstate Sands in Bundaberg. Visit their website at: http://www.earthcommodities.com.au/
