After a short time on the ground, VH-WMY departed Hamilton Island Airport and flew back to Ballarat before continuing to Melbourne (Moorabbin).
Meanwhile, also on Friday 18 December, it is believed that Link Airways (Corporate Air) / Vee H Aviation Cessna 441 VH-VEW "Survey 24" returned to Emerald Airport, touching down from Goulburn. It had flown down there from Emerald Airport at the start of the week - see Blog post below.
VH-VEW "Survey 24" then departed on a three-and-a-half hour survey flight South of Middlemount before landing back at Emerald Airport.
UPDATE! On Sunday 20 December, VH-VEW "Survey 24" returned to Roma Airport and continues to operate out of there as it has done since the start of the month.
Finally, after flying South two days earlier, also on Friday 18 December, Central Highlands Aerial Services (CHAS) Cessna 208 Caravan VH-LMZ returned to Emerald Airport from Orange in New South Wales, again flying via Rockhampton Airport.
