Meanwhile, also on Monday 15 November, Skytrans Dash-8-100 VH-QQB completed another Fly-in Fly-out (FIFO) charter flight to Labona but from Townsville.

Finally, also on Monday 15 November, Skytrans Dash-8-100 VH-QQF flew the coast run from Cairns to Proserpine (Whitsunday Coast) and Rockhampton Airports as SKP81/82.

Interesting to see if this 'pattern' continues.
