After a short time on the ground, VH-NSQ departed Proserpine Airport and returned to Bankstown.
Meanwhile, after arriving at the start of the week, the often visiting American-registered Eclipse EA500 bizjet N257AK was noted departing the Whitsunday Airport at Shute Harbour for Archerfield, also on Thursday 16 July.
And also on Thursday 16 July, several light aircraft called in to Rockhampton Airport on their way North from Archerfield to the Whitsunday Airport at Shute Harbour.
They included: Piper PA-28R-200 Arrow II VH-WJO, SOCATA Trinidad TB-20 VH-IPF, Cessna 182 VH-EVC, and Cessna 172s VH-WPL and VH-LFV, along with . Early afternoon Petrel LS Ultralight 23-2777 also passed through Rockhampton Airport while heading to Shute Harbour.
Out West, also on Thursday 16 July, Brescon (Toowoomba) Beech B200 King Air VH-XDW was noted arriving into Emerald Airport after spending the night at Labona Station Airstrip within Adani Australia's Carmichael Coal Mine site. It then departed to Toowoomba-Wellcamp. It had arrived directly into Labona from Wellcamp on Wednesday 15 July.
Finally, it's also worth noting that the two Cessna Citation bizjets that arrived into Emerald Airport earlier in the week both departed 'home' to the Sunshine Coast over the last couple of days. Mackellar Mining Equipment / Flight Options (Australia) Cessna 560 Citation Ultra bizjet VH-MMC departed on Wednesday 15 July while the AAA Aircraft / Flight Options (Australia) Cessna 550 Citation II Bravo VH-HVM departed on Thursday 16 July.
