After spending the night, on Wednesday 1 July, VH-MMC departed Bilo and returned to the Sunny Coast.

Meanwhile, also noted visiting the region, also on Wednesday 1 July, was a pair of Air Gold Coast lighties completing various flights to various parts.  Beech 58 Baron VH-YDC made its weekly visit to Rockhampton Airport, arriving from Townsville before later departing to Archerfield and then the Gold Coast.  It flew North the previous day.

While Beech 76 Duchess VH-ZUA landed at my local Clermont Aerodrome from the Gold Coast and Archerfield before then flying up to the Labona Station Airstrip within Adani Australia's Carmichael Coal Mine site.  VH-ZUA then flew into Biloela / Thangool Airport before returning to Archerfield and its Gold Coast base.

While over the last couple of days, Hinterland Aviation Cessna 208B Caravans VH-TFS and VH-LZK have been noted completing Fly-in Fly-out (FIFO) charter flights into Labona from both Townsville and Rockhampton Airports.
