VH-SCQ looked to arrived from and then later depart back to Toowoomba.

Of interest, eagle-eyed readers will see a Queensland State flag on the tail of the Super King Air - an aircraft which previously flew with the Queensland Government Airwing as VH-SGQ until late 2005.

Meanwhile, also calling into Hamo, also on Friday 26 November, was DeGunst Transport P/L Textron (Cessna) 208 Caravan VH-NPZ which visited from its Bundaberg Airport base.

While Ipswich-based Airborne P/L (Palm Lake Works) Pilatus PC-12/47E VH-PLE flew up from Gold Coast to Hamilton Island Airport and back to the Goldie but via Bundaberg Airport.  VH-PLE had also visited Bundaberg Airport from the Gold Coast on Thursday 25 November.

UPDATE!  On Saturday 27 November, VH-PLE completed another flight to Hamilton Island Airport, arriving from and then departing back to the Gold Coast once again.

And BPW Aviation / Airspeed Aviation Beech 58 Baron VH-SQC flew up from Tamworth to Mackay Airport before it then flew down to Archerfield.

Finally, also on Friday 26 November, the Queensland Police Service (Airwing) (State of Queensland) Raytheon B1900D VH-PSK flew down from Cairns and Townsville to Hervey Bay (Fraser Coast) Airport and then Brisbane before it then later flew back North.
