It is believed that VH-JGB was on a closed charter, transporting the cast and crew members of the Channel 9 television program 'Today' out West as a part of week-long tour of outside broadcasts that they are doing during this week.

UPDATE!  On Tuesday 27 June, VH-JGB continued its charter flying from Winton to Longreach Airport as JG93 before continuing to Wangaratta in Victoria as JG94.

Meanwhile, later on Monday 26 June, Silver Linings Aviation Cessna 680 Citation Sovereign bizjet VH-ZEK also arrived into Hamilton Island Airport.  It touched down from Bankstown and looked to be staying for at least the night.

Another bizjet to visit Hamo in recent days in the form of Brisbane-based Cessna 525A CitationJet2 VH-MOR was noted departing Hamilton Island Airport for Cairns on Sunday 25 June.  It had arrived from the Gold Coast on Friday 23 June.

Finally, the Queensland Government (State of Queensland) Raytheon B300 Super King Air VH-SGQ was noted arriving into Hamilton Island Airport from Brisbane on Sunday 25 June.  It returned to the capital on Monday 26 June.
