On Friday 22 April, a new (second-hand) Canadair CL-600-2B16 Challenger 604 bizjet N685SC was spotted visiting Hamilton Island Airport.  It is reported that the Challenger 604 bizjet is operated by the Sunshine Coast-based Machjet / McDermont Aviation Group.  Indeed it visited Hamilton Island Airport from the Sunshine Coast.

Of interest, N685SC only arrived into Australia at the Sunshine Coast late on Tuesday 19 April after completing a ferry flight all the way over from Fort Lauderdale in the USA.

Meanwhile, some other bizjets around the region, also on Friday 22 April, included Special Mining Services / Flight Options (Australia) Embraer EMB-505 Phenom 300E bizjet VH-UYX which visited Proserpine (Whitsunday Coast) Airport once again.  This time it arrived from and later departed back to Sydney.

While Avcair Embraer 500 Phenom 100EV bizjet VH-NJR looked to fly from Brisbane to Warwick and then up to Maryborough Airport.  It then returned to Brisbane.

And fellow Avcair (Capital B Aviation Services) LearJet 60 bizjet VH-OLJ visited Rockhampton Airport from its Brisbane base.

Finally, also on Friday 22 April, Wagga Air Centre (Mabena) SOCATA TBM-850 VH-PVM as "Wagga Air 669" landed at Longreach Airport from Birdsville.  It has progressed across from Broome in Western Australia over the last few days o what looks to be a closed charter flight. 

UPDATE!  On Sunday 24 April, VH-PVM as "Wagga Air 669" departed Longreach Airport for Goulburn and Wagga Wagga.

And ZephAir Australia - Aircraft Charters Piper PA-31 Navajo VH-AYT departed Gladstone Airport for its Townsville base.  It looked to arrive from there the previous afternoon.
