Navair Flight Operations Embraer EMB-500 Phenom 100 Bizjet VH-LXZ Spotted at Mackay Airport Once Again - Plus More!

On Thursday 6 October, Navair Flight Operations Embraer EMB-500 Phenom 100 bizjet VH-LXZ was spotted visiting Mackay Airport.

The frequent visitor to the Sugar City this time looked to fly up from and then returned back to Bankstown via Maitland and the Gold Coast.

Also departing Mackay Airport, also on Thursday 6 October, was 1957-built Piper PA-22-150 tri-pacer which headed back to Atherton.  It looked to arrive earlier in the week.

While Tasmania-registered Helicopter Resources P/L's Eurocopter AS.350B3 Squirrel helicopter VH-UUG is perhaps heading back to Tassie, departing Mackay Airport for Biloela / Thangool Airport and then ports further South.

Meanwhile, also on Thursday 6 October, Edwards Coaches Cessna 441 Conquest II VH-OXY departed Theodore Aerodrome for Mount Isa and then back to Armidale.  It had departed from there at the start of the week and arrived into Theordore Aerodrome from Nyngan on Wednesday 5 October.

The New South Wales National Parks and Wildlife Textron Aviation (Cessna) 208B Caravan VH-TFV "Park Air 26" continued its adventures around Queensland, departing Mount Isa for Longreach Airport before then continuing across to Rockhampton Airport.

UPDATE!  On Friday 7 October, VH-TFV "Park Air 26" departed Rockhampton Airport for the South.  It appears to have ended up at Birdsville.

While Brisbane-based Crockett Aviation Group Beech B200 King Air VH-FAQ visited the Labona Station Airstrip within Adani Australia's (Bravus Mining & Resources) Carmichael Coal Mine site from Archerfield and the Sunshine Coast.

Aircair Aviation (Aircair Helicopters) Cessna 340A VH-MPQ visited my local Clermont Aerodrome from its Moree base.

And Brisbane-based Piper PA-31-350 VH-RPV called into Emerald Airport while flying up from Rolleston Aerodrome to Hughenden and then Undara - perhaps on a closed tourist charter flight.

Finally, also on Thursday 6 October, Queensland Government (QGAir) Rescue (State of Queensland) Agusta AW139 helicopter VH-ESH headed North from Archerfield to Cairns via Gladstone, Mackay and Townsville Airports at the completion of planned maintenance.

Of interest, fellow QGAir Rescue Agusta AW139 helicopter VH-ESZ has been making frequent medical evacuation flights to Mackay Base Hospital from and back to Townsville Base Hospital and Townsville Airport as "Rescue 521".

And Pionair Australia British Aerospace BAe 146-200QC VH-SAZ was noted arriving in Rockhampton Airport from Horn Island and Cairns as 'SFZ643' / "Skyforce 643".

UPDATE!  On Friday 7 October, VH-SAZ departed Rockhampton Airport for Brisbane.
