It looked to arrive from Armidale and Walgett and later depart to Vanrook Station and then Cairns.

Meanwhile, also on Wednesday 17 May, Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) (Cobham SAR Services Pty Ltd) Bombardier CL-600-2B16 Challenger 604 bizjet VH-XNC as "Rescue 440" flew down from Cairns to complete and coordinate Search and Rescue operations North-East of Gladstone.

It acted as overseer for LifeFlight Bell 412s VH-XCI "Rescue 522" which flew up from Bundaberg Airport to Gladstone Airport before then heading out to the search area.  It later returned to Gladstone Airport and then back to Bundy.

VH-XNC "Rescue 440" returned to Cairns.

Finally, also on Wednesday 17 May, Beech A36 Bonanza VH-ILG flew up to Mackay from the Sunshine Coast.  VH-ILG usually frequents Mackay and also Emerald Airports but of late, it has been on some adventurous flights to Western Australia and most recently, South Australia.

RDO Equipment Co. Pilatus PC-12/47 VH-WPH visited Emerald Airport from Toowoomba.

While Van's RV14 VH-TRV flew down from Mareeba to Blackall Airport before then departing to Cobar and Benalla.  VH-TRV is registered in Malaysia but shows with a Victorian operator.  Indeed it has been noted visiting several places since arriving into Australia from Malaysia earlier in the month.

And Link Airways (Corporate Air / Vee H Aviation) Cessna 441 Conquest VH-VEH as "Survey 23" flew down from Mackay Airport to complete airwork near Emerald before then landing at Emerald Airport.  It then departed for more airwork before then returning back to Mackay Airport.
