New Hinterland Aviation Cessna 208 Grand Caravan VH-JES Calls into The Labona Station Airstrip at The Carmichael Mine

On Monday 27 June, new Hinterland Aviation Cessna 208 Grand Caravan VH-JES was noted making what appears to be its first visit into the region, operating a Fly-in Fly-out (FIFO) charter flight from Townsville into the Labona Station Airstrip within Adani Australia's (Bravus Mining & Resources) Carmichael Coal Mine site and back to Townsville.

It operated as HND210/211.

Of interest, VH-JES was delivered to Hinterland Aviation in February this year with the Grand Caravan ferrying over from South Africa as ZS-TJR.

Hinterland Aviation continues to operate closed FIFO  charter flights in and out of Labona from both Townsville and Rockhampton Airports. It appears that fellow Cessna 208 Caravans VH-TFQ and VH-TFS are currently operating flights out of and back to Rockhampton Airport.
