A Couple of Nice Corporate Turboprops Pop into Bundaberg Airport - TBM 700 N700BK & P-180 M-ETAL

On Wednesday 12 September, the now becoming familiar sight of American-registered but Brisbane-based SOCATA TBM 700 N700BK was noted on the ground at Bundaberg Airport.  It was heard to be making a departure to Archerfield.

Unfortunately, its exact movements are not known so when it arrived into Bundaberg Airport is a mystery!

Meanwhile, also noted visiting Bundaberg Airport, also on Wednesday 12 September, was Isle of Man-registered but Coffs Harbour-based Piaggio P-180 Avanti II M-ETAL.  It arrived from Coffs Harbour (New South Wales) and looked to be spending the night.

UPDATE!  On Thursday 13 September, M-ETAL completed a return flight from Bundaberg Airport to Sydney before it departed Bundy for Coffs Harbour.

As mentioned below, also visiting Bundaberg Airport but on Monday 10 September was LifeFlight (Aeromed) LearJet 45 bizjet VH-CXJ which was noted arriving on possibly a training from Brisbane after completing airwork at Hervey Bay (Fraser Coast) Airport.  It then returned to the capital.

UPDATE!  VH-CXJ was back at Bundaberg Airport on Friday 14 September, looking to complete more training while on a flight out of Brisbane.  After landing at Bundy for a short time, VH-CXJ continued to Gladstone Airport where it again landed for a short time.  It then returned to Brisbane.

Finally, up at Mackay Airport, also on Wednesday 12 September, Embraer EMB-550 Legacy 500 bizjet N142GZ departed to the Gold Coast and Sydney.

UPDATE!  N142GZ returned to Mackay Airport from Sydney on Sunday 16 September.
