The smart little Citation Mustang looked to pop into Hervey Bay (Fraser Coast) Airport, flying up from the Sunshine Coast via airwork at Maryborough Airport, and then later back to the Sunshine Coast, all as "Navair 187".

UPDATE!  On Friday 10 February, VH-NFP looked to complete a similar flight up from the Sunshine Coast to Hervey Bay Airport via Maryborough Airport before later returning to the Sunny Coast.

And Brisbane-based Teys Australia Cessna 525 Citation CJ2 bizjet VH-TEY was noted calling into Hamilton Island Airport.  It looked to fly up from its Archerfield base.  At the time of writing, it appears that VH-TEY is staying at Hamo for at least the night.

Meanwhile, also on Thursday 9 February, 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.

The Queensland Government Airwing (State of Queensland) Raytheon B300 Super King Air VH-SGQ arrived into Rockhampton Airport from Cairns and Townsville before then departing to Brisbane. It later returned North to Townsville and then Cairns.

Flight Training Adelaide (FTA) / Qantas Group Pilot Academy Diamond DA-40 Star training aircraft VH-ERE arrived into Rockhampton Airport from its Toowoomba-Wellcamp base via Bundaberg Airport.  It later departed back to Wellcamp. 

Robinson R66 helicopter VH-VJM arrived into Rockhampton Airport from Archerfield and later departed to 'Rainbow Station', West of Rockhampton.

Beech E55 Baron VH-EZF visited Charters Towers Aerodrome from Gympie.

Emerald based Cessna 182 VH-JXM returned to Emerald Airport from Redcliffe.  It looks to be a regular flyer between the two places.

And Australia Skydive Cessna 208 Caravan VH-YMV called into Emerald Airport, arriving from Tully and then departing to Shellharbour Airport at Wollongong and then Melbourne (Moorabbin).

UPDATE!  On Friday 10 February, Cessna 208 Caravan VH-DZQ, which is also operated by Australia Skydive, flew into Tully from Shellharbour.  Of interest, Skydive Australia (Skydive the Beach Group) Cessna 208 Grand Caravan VH-BCR also seems to be currently based at Tully for Skydiving operations.
