VH-ZVM was due to continue to Mackay Airport and Innisfail but looked to remain overnight at Bundy and eventually departed Bundaberg Airport late morning on Friday 13 April.

Meanwhile, a couple of other interesting light General Aviation (GA) and other aircraft have also been noted visiting Bundaberg and other Fraser Coast Airports in recent days.

Air Queensland's Partenavia P.68B VH-IYF was also noted visiting several CQ Airports including Bundaberg, Gladstone and Mackay at various times every day this week.  It completed multiple flights out of and back to its Redcliffe base.
