Early on Thursday, ZK-KBU was the first to arrive in Mackay, touching down from the Gold Coast. Later in the day, ZK-KBN joined ZK-KBU in Mackay, arriving from Toowoomba. Both aircraft were scheduled to depart to Cairns.
Incidentally, it was a busy morning at Mackay Airport on Thursday 30 August, with a number of other interesting light aircraft arriving and departing. Seair Beech B200 VH-MWQ, J.M. Kelly (Project Builders) Cessna 310 VH-FFA, and the Queensland Government Raytheon B300 Super King Air VH-SGQ were all noted arriving into Mackay during the morning. Meanwhile, noted departing Mackay were Bundaberg-based Cessna 414 VH-CBT and Shadforth's Civil Engineering Cessna 414 VH-SMX which departed to Gladstone (where Shane T photographed it below).
