While LifeFlight (Aeromed) Bombardier Challenger 604 bizjet VH-URR "Ambulance 604" flew down from Townsville to land at Mackay Airport.  It then continued down to Brisbane.  Later, VH-URR "Ambulance 604" departed Brisbane and called into Hervey Bay (Fraser Coast) Airport before returning to Brisbane.  It later returned to Townsville.

Meanwhile, also on Saturday 10 December, WDC Equipment and Contracting Raytheon 58 Baron VH-EZR flew up from Archerfield to the Whitsunday Airport at Shute Harbour before then flying down to Chinchilla Aerodrome and back to Archerfield.

Finally, also on Saturday 10 December, 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.  

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

UPDATE!  It completed more flights to Lady Elliot Island on Saturday 17 December and Monday 19 December, flying between its Bundaberg Airport base, as well as Hervey Bay Airports.

Of interest, Seair Pacific / Istlecote Cessna 208 Caravans VH-TFB, VH-LMD, VH-TQW, VH-TQI and VH-TLH were also noted flying between Hervey Bay Airport and Lady Elliott Island.
