After presumably refuelling, VH-XND "Rescue 660" departed Mackay Airport and was noted flying North towards to the Whitsundays before turning out to sea.
I presume that it was completing a sortie in the area.
Meanwhile, after visiting Mackay Airport yesterday - see Blog post below - on Sunday 6 January, LifeFlight (Aeromed) Bombardier CL-600-2B16 Challenger 604 bizjet VH-URR "Ambulance 604" was back in CQ, this time calling into Proserpine (Whitsunday Coast) Airport from Brisbane. It later returned to the capital.
