After a couple of hours on the ground, VH-URR returned to Brisbane presumably completing a medical evacuation flight.

Meanwhile, LifeFlight (Aeromed) LearJet 45 bizjet VH-VVI "Ambulance 451" visited Rockhampton Airport twice in as many days this week, arriving from Brisbane late on Tuesday 30 October and then departing to Townsville in the wee small hours of Wednesday 31 October before returning to Rocky from Townsville much later on Wednesday 31 October and then departing to Brisbane in the wee small hours of Thursday 1 November.

Of interest, VH-VVI looked to complete a training flight to Proserpine (Whitsunday Coast) Airport from and back to Townsville also on Tuesday 30 October.
