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

On Wednesday 28 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 a fortnight ago 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-TFQ, which was earlier noted arriving direct from Rockhampton Airport as HND610. VH-TFQ 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 30 October, VH-TFQ returned to Clermont Aerodrome from Labona as HND611 before returning to Rockhampton Airport as HND612.  While VH-MMC departed Clermont Aerodrome for Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast.

Meanwhile, another couple of bizjets also noted around Central Queensland Airports, also on Wednesday 28 October, included Gulf Coast Aviation Cessna 510 Citation Mustang bizjet VH-KXM which arrived back into Rockhampton Airport from the Sunshine Coast and later departed to Maramie (Dorunda) and Cairns.

While new Poolhurst Aviation Air Charter Services Pilatus PC-24 jet VH-VTF flew up to Hamilton Island Airport from Archerfield.  It then flew down to Port Lincoln and Adelaide in South Australia.

Finally, slightly smaller General Aviation (GA) visitors to CQ Airports, also on Wednesday 28 October, included FKG Air (Redjet Aviation) Hawker Beechcraft B200GT VH-FKB which visited Rockhampton Airport from Toowoomba and Archerfield.  While McDermott Aviation Group / Machjet International Beech B200 King Air VH-MWZ was spotted also visiting Rockhampton Airport.  It arrived from the North-West and departed to the Sunshine Coast.

Brisbane-based Hewitt Cattle Australia P/L SOCATA TBM 700 VH-PGA landed at Moura Airport from Archerfield before then departing to Longreach Airport and Ambalindum (YABL). 

Beech 58 Baron VH-KGK flew up to Labona from Archerfield before then departed back to there via Clermont Aerodrome.

And Brescon (Toowoomba) Beech B200 King Air VH-WXN also arrived into Clermont Aerodrome but from Toowoomba-Wellcamp Airport.  At the time of writing, it was due to return to Wellcamp early on Thursday 29 October.
