While Mitchell Water Cessna 525 Citation M2 bizjet VH-WMY had a busy day of flying.  It departed Melbourne (Moorabbin) for Melbourne (Essendon) before then calling into Miles, Chinchilla and then the Whitsunday Airport at Shute Harbour.  It then flew back to Miles and then Chinchilla Airports before flying back down to Essendon and back to Moorabbin.

And seemingly Australian based but American registered Eclipse Aviation EA550 Very Light jet (VLJ) bizjet N771MT looked to pop into Kingaroy Aerodrome from its Sunshine Coast base.

And Aero Facilities (Adelaide) Cessna 208 Grand Caravan VH-FWX passed through Longreach Airport while flying up from Adelaide to Cairns.

Of interest, this aircraft was delivered to Australia via Darwin and Adelaide in May this year wearing the Sri Lankan registration marking of 4R-EXP.  It was subsequently placed on the Australian Aircraft Register as VH-FWX in June.
