Sadly, due to the low cloud and persistent rain showers, there are no photos to show of its visit. A30-002 was flying as "Wedgetail 01" and reportedly flew up from and then back to RAAF Base Williamtown near Newcastle in New South Wales.
Of interest, A30-002 wears a nice piece of artwork applied to it with a magpie bird painted on its nose. The magpie is part of the crest of No. 2 Squadron of the RAAF, which operates all six Wedgetails from RAAF Base Williamtown, with a detachment also in Darwin.
Meanwhile, a little later on Monday 7 March, Australian Army NH Industries MRH-90 Multi-Role Helicopter A40-014 was believed to have called into Rockhampton Airport as "Destria 14".
