VH-KXM had flown North from Bankstown to Normanton via Longreach Airport the previous week on Tuesday 24 November.

Meanwhile, it was interesting to note that over the course of last Friday 20 November and last Saturday 21 November, three various Pilatus PC-12 corporate turboprop aircraft called into Longreach Airport.
