VH-JGB arrived into Hamilton Island from Cooktown in North Queensland on Thursday 9 May.  After allowing its passengers to explore the nearby Whitsunday Islands - including Hayman Island - VH-JGB was noted departing Hamo for Ballina/Byron Gateway Airport on Saturday 11 May.

It's also worth mentioning some other private corporate bizjet visitors to Hamilton Island Airport over the past few days.

A familiar visitor to Hamo in the form of Balmoral Air Dassault Falcon 2000EX VH-WIO made yet another trip from Bankstown on Monday 6 May.  It departed back to Bankstown on Thursday 9 May.

On Saturday 11 May, Cessna 680 Citation Sovereign VH-VPL called into Hamilton Island from the Gold Coast.  It later departed to Broome in West Australia.

Lastly, a couple of corporate turbo-prop aircraft called into Hamilton Island over the weekend with Raytheon B200 King Air VH-NSN - which is operated by Austrek Aviation at Toowoomba - flying return from there and Brisbane on Saturday 11 May.  Meanwhile, Beech B200 VH-LQR also arrived at Hamo on Saturday 11 May and then departed to the Sunshine Coast on Sunday 12 May.
