VH-FIY looked to arrive into Gladstone Airport from Brisbane on Tuesday 3 April.  It completed an almost three-hour flight around Gladstone before returning to land.

On Wednesday 4 April, VH-FIY departed Gladstone Airport for Townsville via further navaid calibration around Mackay Airport. 

VH-FIY was heard to be using its usual radio callsign of "Auscal 03".
