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

On Thursday 15 October, Mackellar Mining Equipment / Flight Options (Australia) Cessna 560 Citation Ultra bizjet VH-MMC was spotted once again visiting my local Clermont Aerodrome.  VH-MMC is a fairly regular visitor to my local Clermont Aerodrome with it touching down last week and every couple of weeks over the previous couple of months.

Once again, 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.

UPDATE!  On Friday 16 October, VH-NDC returned to Clermont Aerodrome from Labona as HND3310 before returning to Rockhampton Airport as HND3311.  While VH-MMC departed Clermont Aerodrome for the Sunshine Coast.

While early in the morning, Brescon (Toowoomba) Beech B200 King Air VH-WXN departed Labona for Toowoomba-Wellcamp after it had arrived from there, flying via Clermont Aerodrome, late on Wednesday 14 October.

Meanwhile, elsewhere in Central Queensland, also on Thursday 15 October,  Australian Country Choice Properties (Brisbane) Cessna 560 Citation V Encore bizjet VH-ACC landed at Roma Airport from Archerfield before later departing to Wellclose.  It reversed these flights during the afternoon.
