A Few Other Corporate Bizjets Around CQ and Whitsundays Airports - Plus More!

It was a busy day on Wednesday 20 April with, as mentioned below, multiple movements associated with the upcoming Federal Election plus movements of (possibly?) miners and school kids.  And elsewhere in Central Queensland, there were also multiple corporate bizjet and other movements around the region and especially up in the Whitsundays.

After arriving the previous day, Moorabbin Aviation Services (Victoria) Cessna S550 Citation SII bizjet VH-JLU was noted departing Proserpine (Whitsunday Coast) Airport for Melbourne (Essendon).

And after arriving on Saturday 16 April, Special Mining Services / Flight Options (Australia) Embraer EMB-505 Phenom 300E bizjet VH-UYX finally departed Proserpine (Whitsunday Coast) Airport for Sydney.

Meanwhile, also on Wednesday 20 April, Property Maintenance Australia P/L Pilatus PC-12/47E VH-WJA flew into Rockhampton Airport from Duboo.  It then flew up to Bowen Aerodrome and back to Rockhampton Airport where it now looks to be staying for at least the night.

Machjet (Machjet International) Beech B200C King Air VH-PUY was noted flying up from the Sunshine Coast to Hervey Bay (Fraser Coast) Airport and then Charters Towers Aerodrome where it appears to be staying for the night.

Finally, also on Wednesday 20 April, Skytrans Airlines Dash-8-100 VH-QQC departed Rockhampton Airport for the Labona Station Airstrip within Adani Australia's (Bravus Mining & Resources) Carmichael Coal Mine site as SKP779 before heading over to Mackay Airport as SKP792.

At Mackay Airport, VH-QQC was joined by fellow Skytrans Dash-8-100 VH-QQI which flew down from Townsville as SKP788, and the pair flew more flights to Labona and back to Mackay Airport.

VH-QQI then flew up to Cairns as SKP782, while VH-QQC looks to be staying for the night at Mackay Airport.
