Special Mining Services / Flight Options (Australia) Embraer EMB-505 Phenom 300E Bizjet VH-UYX Spotted at Proserpine (Whitsunday Coast) Airport - Plus More!

On Saturday 16 April, Special Mining Services / Flight Options (Australia) Embraer EMB-505 Phenom 300E bizjet VH-UYX was photographed on the ground and parked up at Proserpine (Whitsunday Coast) Airport. It has earlier arrived from Sydney.

At the time of writing, it appears that VH-UYX is spending at least the night parked at Prosie.

UPDATE!  On Wednesday 20 April, VH-UYX finally departed Proserpine Airport and returned to Sydney.

Meanwhile, also on Saturday 16 April, Bowenville (near Toowoomba) based Cessna 525 CitationJet CJ1+ bizjet VH-JSZ was noted visiting Rockhampton Airport. It arrived from Archerfield before later departing to Natal Downs.

VH-JSZ then returned to Archerfield.

Finally, also on Saturday 16 April, it was interesting to note that DeGunst Transport P/L Textron (Cessna) 208 Caravan VH-NPZ completed a flight from Hervey Bay (Fraser Coast) Airport to Lady Elliot Island and back.  It completed two other flights to Lady Elliot Island on Friday 15 April, flying between its Bundaberg Airport base, as well as Hervey Bay Airports.

Perhaps it is being used by Seair Pacific / Istlecote during the busy Easter holiday period?

Of interest, also on Saturday 16 April, Seair Pacific / Istlecote Cessna 208 Caravans VH-TFB and VH-TQI, along with their De Havilland DHC-6-100 Twin Otter VH-ZKF also operated into Lady Elliot Island from Bundaberg, Hervey Bay and Agnes Water Airports.

While Seair Textron Aviation (Cessna) 208B Caravan VH-TLH was noted arriving into Longreach Airport from Birdsville.  It had flown out from its Gold Coast base to Charleville and then Birdsville Airports on Friday 15 April.

UPDATE!  On Monday 18 April, VH-TLH departed Longreach Airport for Rockhampton Airport and the Lady Elliot Island.  It later flew down to the Gold Coast.

And Crown Cattle P/L Textron Aviation (Cessna) 208 VH-MGC was also noted visiting Longreach Airport.
