It appears to have arrived the previous day, flying up over the same route.
Meanwhile, also on Thursday 8 April, McDermott Aviation Group / Machjet International Raytheon B200 King Air VH-NSN also looked to fly down from Charters Towers Aerodrome but to Hervey Bay (Fraser Coast) Airport before then departing to the Sunshine Coast.
VH-NSN looked to fly North from the Sunny Coast also the previous day.
Of interest, VH-NSN recently broke cover at the Sunshine Coast Airport (above) coming out of the McDermott Aviation hangar with a fresh coat of paint!
Finally, also on Thursday 8 April, Beech 58 Baron VH-CUY continued its adventures in Central Queensland, departing the Labona Station Airstrip within Adani Australia's (Bravus Mining & Resources) Carmichael Coal Mine site for Iffley Homestead (South East of Moranbah) before then heading to Lotus Creek. It had arrived into Labona the previous day - see Blog post below!
UPDATE! On Friday 9 April, VH-CUY departed Lotus Creek to Emerald and then Roma Airports before heading 'home' to its Cloncurry Airport base.
