The sleek Gulfstream arrived from and later departed back to Brisbane.

While Brisbane-based Teys Australia Cessna 525 Citation CJ2 bizjet VH-TEY flew up from the Sunshine Coast to Charters Towers Aerodrome before then heading down to Melbourne (Essendon).

Bowenville (near Toowoomba) based Cessna 525 CitationJet CJ1+ bizjet VH-JSZ visited Mackay Airport from Archerfield via Warwick.

Fellow McDermott Aviation Group / Machjet International Beech B200 King Air VH-SUW also completed a training flight to Kingaroy, flying out of and back to the Sunshine Coast.  It appears that VH-SUW is ex P2-ZMY and was re-registered on Wednesday 14 September.

Of interest, McDermott Aviation Group / Machjet International also recently took delivery of former Air Loyauté Beechcraft B200 King Air F-HEAL at their Sunshine Coast Airport base.  It will reportedly be placed on the Australian Aircraft Register as VH-ZPY.

Meanwhile, a few other lighties were also noted visiting Hervey Bay (Fraser Coast) Airport, also on Monday 24 October.

Cessna 208B Supervan 900 Skydiving Aircraft VH-XLF arrived from Bankstown and Wilton before then departing to the Lakeside Airpark where it seems to have commenced 'operations'.

Elsewhere, Aircair Aviation (Aircair Helicopters) Cessna 340A VH-MPQ indeed landed at my local Clermont Aerodrome from Maungindi before it then hopped to Emerald Airport and later departed to Millmerran and Dalby.  It then returned to Millmerran before returning to Maungindi.

While Norair P/L Beech A36 Bonanza VH-PIZ visited Rockhampton Airport from its Townsville base.

Brisbane-based Australian Agricultural Company Pilatus PC-12/47E VH-AAC landed at Longreach Airport from Brisbane before then departing to Brunette Downs.  It seems to be doing this flight on a weekly basis!

And Brisbane-based Hewitt Cattle Australia P/L SOCATA TBM 700 VH-PGA flew up from Archerfield to Moura Aerodrome and then Dalby before returning to Archerfield.

Finally, also on Monday 24 October, a trio of King Airs were noted around the region, including Interair (based at Essendon) Beech B200 King Air VH-ITH which flew up from Melbourne (Essendon) and Mildura to Longreach Airport and then Winton.
