It looked to fly up from Toowoomba-Wellcamp and the Gold Coast.
After around an hour on the ground, VH-IKJ then returned directly to Wellcamp.
As mentioned previously, the brand new Embraer was delivered to Air Kiribati at Toowoomba-Wellcamp in January 2020 wearing its Brazilian delivery registration marking of PR-EHT.
It was added to the Australian Aircraft Register in February as VH-IKJ is owned by and registered to the Government of Kiribati, with Sydney-based passenger and cargo airline Pionair Australia as the registered operator.
