VH-WMY flew into Labona from Melbourne (Moorabbin) and Swan Hill and later departed back to Moorabbin.

Then, a short time ago, also on Friday 10 July, VH-WMY was noted visiting Proserpine (Whitsunday Coast) Airport, touching down from Moorabbin via Corowa, Balranald and Cobar.  It now looks to be flying back to Moorabbin via Balranald.

Australian Country Choice Properties (Brisbane) Cessna 560 Citation V Encore bizjet VH-ACC continues to fly around Central Queensland Airports and properties.  On Friday 10 July, VH-ACC was noted calling into Dooloogarah before departed to Brindley Park and then Roma Airport.

Meanwhile, some smaller General Aviation (GA) aircraft noted around CQ Airports also on Friday 10 July included Cloncurry-based Pilatus PC-12/47E VH-MDH departed Kierawonga (near Lotus Creek) for Devoncourt Station near Cloncurry.

While Cessna 208 Caravan VH-DJG arrived into its Natal Downs Station base from Archerfield before flying across to Rockhampton Airport.

UPDATE!  On Sunday 12 July, VH-DJG departed Rockhampton Airport and returned to Archerfield.

And another Cessna 208 Caravan, VH-DZZ, of the Skydive the Beach Group, popped into the Whitsunday Coast Airport at Shute Harbour while ferrying South from Cairns to Coffs Harbour and Wollongong.

Of interest, as mentioned below, at the start of the week on Monday 6 July, Wollongong-registered Cessna 208 Caravan skydiving aircraft VH-NMV was noted visiting Emerald Airport while ferrying North from Wollongong via Coffs Harbour to Cairns.

Another (perhaps former) skydiving aircraft in the form of recently re-registered Cessna A185F VH-OZA looked to also visit Emerald Airport this week but from Gatton, arriving on Tuesday 7 July and departing on Thursday 9 July.

Also on Friday 10 July, Mackay-based Rockwell 114 VH-WFA departed Charleville Airport for Longreach Airport before it then continued home to the Palmyra Airstrip near Mackay.  It had arrived into Longreach Airport from there last Sunday 5 July.

While back on the coast, also on Friday 10 July, Raytheon A36 Bonanza VH-YGM was also noted visiting Rockhampton Airport, arriving from its Orange base in New South Wales.  It then departed to Roma Airport.

Also visiting Rockhampton Airport also on Friday 10 July was Austrek Aviation Beech B200 King Air VH-WXO.  It arrived from Toowoomba and departed back there via Archerfield.  VH-WXO flew the opposite route on Monday 6 July - as posted below.

Finally, on Wednesday 8 July, Brescon (Toowoomba) Beech B200 King Air VH-WXN completed a return flight from Toowoomba-Wellcamp to Roma Airport and back before it then flew up to Oaky Creek Mine site and then Labona.  After spending the night parked, on Thursday 9 July, VH-WXN departed Labona for Oaky Creek before returning to Wellcamp.  It did the same flight last week.
