Meanwhile, also on Monday 19 July, McNab Aviation Cessna 414A VH-FKH visited Rockhampton Airport from its Toowoomba base.

Byron Bay-based Beech F33A Bonanza VH-KGL called into Rockhampton Airport from there before departing to Townsville.

UPDATE!  On Friday 23 July, VH-KGL returned to Rockhampton Airport from Townsville before heading 'home' to the Ballina / Byron Bay Gateway Airport.

While Vanderfield Pilatus PC-12/47 VH-WPH flew from Toowoomba to Saint George and Moree before then it then called into Bundaberg Airport.  VH-WPH then returned to Toowoomba.

Finally, a few light General Aviation (GA) aircraft spotted at Mackay Airport, also on Monday 19 July, included Brisbane-based Pesca Aviation AeroCommander 690-A Turbo Commander VH-ATF.  It looked to arrive on Saturday 17 July from Rockhampton Airport arrived there from Archerfield back on Friday 9 July.

UPDATE!  After seemingly completing planned maintenance, VH-ATF finally departed Mackay Airport for Archerfield on Saturday 11 September.

Townsville Flight Training Cessna 182 VH-ONH was spotted - looks like it has had a 'facelift' since it was last seen!

Proserpine-based Piper PA-34-200T Seneca VH-HKQ was parked.

Along with Victorian-registered Beech F33A Bonanza VH-SIQ.

While Bundaberg-based Beech E33 Bonanza VH-FWV was spotted parked at Mackay Airport on Sunday 13 July.
