Comet-registered Cessna 208B Grand Caravan VH-RTC flew out from Hedlow Airfield to Rockhampton Airport and then up to the Whitsunday Airport at Shute Harbour.  It then flew down to the Red Rock Property where it is based and then back to Hedlow.

Of interest, VH-RTC did almost the same flight on Friday 11 August except it flew out of and back to Hedlow.

UPDATE!  On Monday 14 August, VH-PJU completed operations and departed Clermont Aerodrome for Toowoomba.

And Townsville-based ZephAir Australia Piper PA-34-220T Seneca VH-YSI departed Hervey Bay (Fraser Coast) Airport for Toowoomba and Archerfield after operating in the Fraser Coast and Mackay regions for at least the pervious couple of months.
