A Couple of 'Other' Interesting Light GA Aircraft Call into Bundaberg Airport incl American Registered Columbia 300 N189TC and Baron N298WA

Over the last few days, I've noted that some more interesting light General Aviation (GA) aircraft that have called into Bundaberg Airport including a couple of locally-based lighties that still wear American registration markings.

On Friday 26 August, Lancair LC-40-550FG Columbia 300 N189TC was believed to have called into Bundy from its Sunshine Coast base.

While on Sunday 28 August, the familiar sight of Hawker Beechcraft G58 Baron N298WA was once again at Bundaberg Airport, returning from New Zealand flying from North Shore Aerodrome to Kerikeri (Bay of Islands) and Lord Howe Island.

Then on Monday 29 August, a former resident at Bundaberg Airport in the form of CromAir Cessna 414A VH-CBT called in from its now Sunshine Coast home.

The CromAir Facebook page indicates that VH-CBT should depart to the Gold Coast later this week.

Also on Monday 29 August,  Interair / Photomapping Services Cessna 404 Titan VH-TTZ called into Bundaberg Airport from Noumea and the Gold Coast.  On Tuesday 30 August, VH-TTZ departed Bundy for the Hevey Bay (Fraser Coast) Airport, before heading further South to Parkes and then Forbes in New South Wales.

Finally, noted arriving into the Hervey Bay (Fraser Coast) Airport also on Tuesday 30 August was Yakovlev Yak-18T VH-IBT.  Flight tracking website 'Flightaware' indicates that VH-IBT arrived at Hervey Bay from Coffs Harbour and the Gold Coast.  At the time of writing, there is no departure listed so perhaps it is staying at Hervey Bay for the night.  It also appears that VH-IBT is owned in Mackay, so may head further North in the coming days!

UPDATE!  We have confirmation that VH-IBT is now on the ground at Mackay Airport - it is reportedly parked outside the Mackay Aero Club building.
