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

On Thursday 8 October, Mackellar Mining Equipment / Flight Options (Australia) Cessna 560 Citation Ultra bizjet VH-MMC was noted once again visiting my local Clermont Aerodrome.  

VH-MMC is a fairly regular visitor to my local Clermont Aerodrome with it touching down couple of weeks over the previous couple of months.

On this occasion, it appears that the passengers from VH-MMC then joined Hinterland Aviation Cessna 208 Caravan VH-NDC, which was earlier noted arriving direct from Rockhampton Airport as HND610. VH-NDC then departed as HND611 up to the Labona Station Airstrip within Adani Australia's Carmichael Coal Mine site.  It then returned to Rocky but as HND612.

At the time of writing, VH-MMC appears to be closed up and staying for the night at Clermont Aerodrome.

Of interest, also on Thursday 8 October, fellow Hinterland Aviation Cessna 208 Caravan VH-ETF completed the daily Fly-in Fly-out (FIFO) runs from Rockhampton Airport direct to Labona and back.

Meanwhile, also visiting Clermont Aerodrome, also early on Thursday 8 October, was Brescon (Toowoomba) Beech B200 King Air VH-WXN which arrived from Labona before departing to Toowoomba-Wellcamp.  It had flown up to Labona from Wellcamp the previous day.

Out at Longreach Airport, also on Thursday 8 October, Aerorescue (ex-AMSA) Aero Pearl Dornier 328-100 VH-PPG was noted passing through.  It arrived from Brisbane and later departed to Darwin.  VH-PPG looked to spend time operating with Air Affairs (Australia) out of HMAS Albatross at Nowra in New South Wales.  It had arrived into Brisbane from there in July.

Finally, also on Thursday 8 October, often visiting American-registered Eclipse EA500 bizjet N257AK was noted departing the Whitsunday Airport at Shute Harbour for Archerfield.  It had arrived into the Whitsundays on Monday 5 October.
