Mackellar Mining Equipment / Flight Options (Australia) Cessna 560 Citation Ultra Bizjet VH-MMC Back at CQ Airports - Plus More!

For the second time this week, on Wednesday 29 July, Mackellar Mining Equipment / Flight Options (Australia) Cessna 560 Citation Ultra bizjet VH-MMC was noted visiting some Central Queensland Airports.  It arrived into Rockhampton Airport from the Sunshine Coast before it later flew across to Emerald Airport for its second visit for the week.

At the time of writing, VH-MMC appears to be spending at least night at Emerald Airport.

UPDATE!  On Thursday 30 July, VH-MMC was noted departing Emerald Airport for the Sunshine Coast.

Meanwhile, also on Wednesday 29 July, Seair Pacific / Istelcote De Havilland DHC-6-100 Twin Otter VH-BVS was back in CQ operating the weekly Fly-in Fly-out (FIFO) closed charter flight from the Gold Coast and Brisbane to Rockhampton Airport then up to Collinsville Aerodrome and Townsville.  VH-BVS later returned South over the same route.

And fellow Seair Cessna 208 Caravan VH-TQW was also noted arriving into Rockhampton Airport for Hervey Bay (Fraser Coast) Airport, also on Wednesday 29 July.

UPDATE!  On Thursday 30 July, VH-TQW departed Rocky for Wanella Station near Coppabella.  It then flew down to Maryborough and Hervey Bay Airports.

An interesting visitor noted also visiting Hervey Bay (Fraser Coasr) Airport, also on Wednesday 29 July, was Machjet (Machjet International) Beech B200 King Air VH-PUY.  It arrived from and later departed back to its Sunshine Coast base.

VH-PUY is believed to be ex-P2-LNJ which was also owned and operated by Machjet.

Another familiar visitor in the form of Air Gold Coast Beech 58 Baron VH-YDC made its weekly visit to Rockhampton Airport also on Wednesday 29 July.  As usual, it arrived from Townsville and later departed to Archerfield and the Gold Coast.  It had flown North the previous day.

While up at Mackay Airport, also on Wednesday 29 July, BPW Aviation / Airspeed Aviation of Scone, New South Wales, Cessna 404 Titan VH-SKV and Cessna 441 Conquest II VH-EQU both visited from Tamworth via Brisbane.  These pair of Cessnas seem to be becoming regular weekly visitors.

Finally, a couple of other light General Aviation (GA) visitors to the Labona Station Airstrip within Adani Australia's Carmichael Coal Mine site included Brisbane-based Piper PA-31-350 VH-RPV which landed there from Archerfield before later departing to Emerald Airport and back to Archerfield on Wednesday 29 July.

While Brescon (Toowoomba) Beech B200 King Air VH-WXN flew into Labona from Toowoomba-Wellcamp also on Wednesday 29 July.  It was due to return direct to Wellcamp early on Thursday 30 July.

And on Tuesday 28 July, Redjet Aviation Piper PA-31 Navajo VH-PJU visited Labona, flying in from and back to its Toowoomba base via Emerald Airport.
