MacKellar Mining Equipment Pty Ltd (Revesco Aviation) Cessna 680 Citation Sovereign VH-MMC Calls into Labona at the Carmichael Mine - Plus More!

On Monday 4 July, MacKellar Mining Equipment Pty Ltd (Revesco Aviation) Cessna 680 Citation Sovereign bizjet VH-MMC was noted visiting the Labona Station Airstrip within Adani Australia's (Bravus Mining & Resources) Carmichael Coal Mine site.  It looked to arrive from and then later depart back to its Sunshine Coast base.

Meanwhile, also on Monday 4 July, Little Aviation (Victoria) Gulfstream G-VI (G650ER) VH-LAL arrived into Hamilton Island Airport from Melbourne (Tullamarine).

UPDATE!  On Saturday 9 July, VH-LAL finally departed Hamilton Island Airport and returned to Melbourne (Tullamarine).

And the locally-based Embraer EMB-550 Legacy 500 bizjet N142GZ was back in the air, departing Mackay Airport for the Gold Coast.  At the time of writing, it is winging its way back from the Goldie to Mackay Airport.

Finally, also on Monday 4 July, brand new Ipswich-based Airborne P/L (Palm Lake Works) Pilatus PC-12/47E VH-VLQ was noted arriving into Bundaberg Airport from the Gold Coast - where it was photographed below departing.

It later returned back to the Gold Coast.

Of interest, it seems that VH-VLQ - which was only delivered to Adelaide last week (as shown below) wearing the Swiss delivery registration marking of HB-FQQ - has replaced fellow PC-12 VH-PLE which was registered to and flown by the same organisations.  

It looks like VH-PLE has re-located to Victoria with is noted recently operating out of Melbourne (Moorabbin) Airport.

While West Australia-based Pilatus PC-12/47E VH-YGK flew into Longreach Airport from Kununurra.  It is due to depart to Coober Pedy and Kalgoorlie on Tuesday 5 July.

And Cessna 208B Caravan VH-FMX also called into Longreach Airport but (possibly) from Quilpie.  The Caravan has most recently been used as a skydiving platform.

UPDATE!  On Tuesday 5 July, VH-FMX departed Longreach Airport for (possibly) Croydon in Far North Queensland.

Finally, also on Monday 4 July, Link Airways (Corporate Air / Vee H Aviation) SAAB 340B VH-VEF visited Theodore Aerodrome from Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast.

And fellow Link Airways Metro 23 VH-VEK operated their Regular Passenger Transport (RPT) flight to Biloela /Thangool Airport from and back to Brisbane.
