It appears that the Wedgetail flew up from RAAF Base Williamtown at Newcastle and then departed Gladstone Airport to RAAF Base Amberley where it landed.

A30-003 was noted to be using the radio callsign of "Wedgetail 11".

As posted below, A30-003 was one of two RAAF Wedgetails that completed training at CQ Airports on Wednesday 4 March.

Meanwhile, also on Friday 6 March, Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Beech B350 Super King Air A32-651 as "Beaufort 12" was noted passing through Roma Airport.  It arrived from RAAF Base East Sale and later departed to Cairns.

UPDATE!  On Sunday 8 March, A32-651 "Beaufort 12" returned South to RAAF Base East Sale from Cairns, again flying via Roma Airport.
