After staying for most of the day, VH-MMC made an early evening departure and returned to the Sunshine Coast.

This is the second week in-a-row that VH-MMC has visited CQ - Bilo and Emerald Airport - on a Wednesday.

Another bizjet to pop back into CQ also on Wednesday 20 March was Special Mining Services / Flight Options (Australia) Embraer EMB-505 Phenom 300E bizjet VH-UYX which was noted visiting Bundaberg Airport once again - albeit very briefly.  It looked to complete two flights from the Sunshine Coast to Bundy and back where both times it completed a missed approach at Bundaberg Airport.

The familiar sight of the Queensland Police Service (Airwing) (State of Queensland) Cessna 560 Citation Ultra bizjet VH-PSU was back in CQ once again on Wednesday 20 March with it calling into Rockhampton Airport during a busy day of flying.  It arrived from Townsville and departed to Brisbane.

And Mitchell Water Cessna 525 Citation M2 bizjet VH-WMY was back at Roma Airport also on Wednesday 20 March.  It looked to call in from Albury and depart to Mildura during a busy day fo flying.  VH-WMY had also visited Roma Airport the previous day - see Blog post below.

Meanwhile, also on Wednesday 20 March, a nice mix of light General Aviation (GA) aircraft were also noted visiting CQ Airports on various flights.

Hinterland Aviation Beech B200 King Air VH-HLJ was noted arriving into Rockhampton Airport from Cairns as 'HND411' / "Hinterland 411".  It then departed to Doongmabulla (North-West of Clermont) and later returned to Rockhampton Airport.  VH-HLJ then returned to Cairns.

After arriving into Longreach Airport the previous day, on Wednesday 20 March, Hawker Beechcraft G58 Baron N298WA was noted returning home to its Bundaberg Airport base.

And finally, Corporate Air / Vee H Aviation Cessna 441 Conquest VH-VEJ was noted arriving into Oaky Creek Mine from Mudgee in New South Wales.  It later departed to Emerald Airport and then Brisbane before then being noted arriving into Clermont Aerodrome later in the afternoon.

Sincere thanks to the Sunshine Coast Plane Spotting Facebook page for allowing us to share their great photo of VH-MMC!
