It appears that the Fokker F-70 is staying for at least the night on Hamo.

UPDATE!  On Tuesday 25 May, VH-KBX departed Hamilton Island Airport for Sydney and Melbourne as UTY571.

As we've mentioned previously, the Fokker F-70 jet VH-KBX previously flew with the Royal Netherlands Air Force / Government of the Netherlands as a VIP transport aircraft and carried the Dutch registration marking of PH-KBX. It arrived into Brisbane in August 2017 and entered the Australian Aircraft Register as VH-KBX soon after. VH-KBX looked to finally enter service in May 2019.
