On Saturday 13 August, Cessna 560 Citation Encore bizjet VH-YUL of the Yulgibar Pastoral Company (of Montmorency, Victoria) called into Rockhampton Airport from Baryulgil in Northern New South Wales.

After a few hours on the ground, VH-YUL departed back to Baryulgil.

A couple of interesting light General Aviation (GA) visitors to Rockhampton Airport on Saturday 13 August included Austrek Aviation Cessna 310R VH-DZX which flew in from Toowoomba and Kingaroy and returned that way later.  While Longreach-based Piper PA-32-300 VH-HGR arrived from Gympie,

Meanwhile, on Friday 12 August, Air Queensland Piper PA-31-350 VH-XLB flew North from its Redcliffe base and completed airwork at Bundaberg and Rockhampton Airports.  And later on Friday 12 August, Aerorescue (AMSA - Australian Maritime Safety Authority) / Aero Pearl Dornier 328-100 VH-PPJ "Rescue 471" flew up from its Brisbane base to participate in a search for a missing boat off the Capricorn Coast.  It then called into Rockhampton Airport for fuel before returning to the search and then eventually Brisbane.
