VH-SGY looked to arrive from Brisbane and the Toowoomba-Wellcamp Airport and later return to the capital.

Meanwhile, also on Tuesday 16 February, a couple of familiar Pilatus PC-12 turboprops were noted coming and going at some Central Queensland Airports.

Brisbane-based Pilatus PC-12/47E VH-AAC departed Emerald Airport for Mount Isa. It had arrived into Emerald Airport from Archerfield the previous day.

While Pilatus PC-12/45 VH-PID was noted arriving into Rockhampton Airport from its Toowoomba base.

UPDATE!  VH-PID departed Rockhampton Airport on Thursday 18 February and returned to Toowoomba.

Also at Rockhampton Airport, the visiting Gulf Aircraft Textron Aviation (Cessna) 208 Caravan VH-PYO, which arrived last Tuesday 9 February, departed to Hollins Bay (YHOY) near Stanage before later returning.

UPDATE!  On Wednesday 17 February, VH-PYO departed Rockhampton Airport and returned 'home' to Donors Hill (South of Normanton).

Of interest, also noted visiting Rockhampton Airport but on Monday 15 February was NSW based Cessna 310J VH-DKY which arrived from its Coffs Harbour base before then later returning back to there.

And it appears that locally-based R-Mach Aviation's Lancair 4 has been re-registered to VH-VIE.  On Tuesday 16 February, VH-VIE (formerly VH-XVP) departed Rockhampton Airport to then Old Station then to Griffith in New South Wales. During the afternoon VH-VIE reversed the flight.

Finally, also on Tuesday 16 February, Great Western Aviation Beech B200 VH-XGV flew up from Brisbane to my local Clermont Aerodrome before then continuing to the Labona Station Airstrip within Adani Australia's (Bravus Mining & Resources) Carmichael Coal Mine site.  It then returned to Brisbane.

While Brescon (Toowoomba) Beech B200 VH-WXN flew up from Toowoomba-Wellcamp to Chinchilla, Yellow Bank Junction and Rolleston Airports before then returning to Chinchilla Airport and then Wellcamp.
