Meanwhile, also on Tuesday 17 August, West Coast Seaplanes (Broome, Western Australia) Textron (Cessna) 208 Caravan VH-NPZ, which currently appears to be based at Bundaberg Airport, flew up from there to Nebo Aerodrome and back.

Link Airways (Corporate Air / Vee H Aviation) Metro 23 VH-VEK was noted visiting Rockhampton Airport.  It looked to arrive from and later depart back to Brisbane.

Raytheon A36 Bonanza VH-YGM departed Rockhampton Airport for Saint George. It has been at Rocky since the start of July.

UPDATE!  On Wednesday 18 August, VH-YGM returned to Rockhampton Airport from Saint George but via Dalby - perhaps it is now based at Rocky?

And FKG Air (Redjet Aviation) Hawker Beechcraft B200GT VH-FKB flew from Toowoomba to Archerfield and then up to the Samuel Hill Aerodrome within the Shoalwater Bay Training Area (SWBTA) and then on to Mackay Airport before flying directly back to Toowoomba. 

Finally, also on Tuesday 17 August, Hinterland Aviation completed an aircraft swap at the Labona Station Airstrip within Adani Australia's (Bravus Mining & Resources) Carmichael Coal Mine site.  Cessna 208 Caravan VH-TFS arrived into Labona from Cairns as HND790 before it then departed on one of the regular Fly-in Fly-out (FIFO) charter flights to Rockhampton Airport as HND351.

Earlier, fellow Cessna 208 Caravan VH-TFQ departed Rockhampton Airport to Labona as HND350 before it then flew up to Cairns also as HND790.
