After a short time on the ground - presumably for fuel - A36-002 departed to the Gold Coast and points South.

Meanwhile, also on Tuesday 8 November, Australian Army NH Industries MRH-90 Multi-Role Helicopter A40-011 returned to Rockhampton Airport.  It visited for a short time from Townsville.

Finally, RAAF Beech B350 Super King Air A32-351 was again noted flying around Central Queensland on Tuesday 8 November.  It flew out of Townsville and reportedly completed several missed approaches at Longreach Airport before it returned to Townsville.  A32-351 was again using the radio callsign of "Torch 35".

UPDATE!  A32-351 "Torch 35" was yet again heard departing Townsville and flying around CQ on Wednesday 9 November, this time is was heard to complete airwork at Hamilton Island and Proserpine (Whitsunday Coast) Airports before returning to Townsville.
